From School Library Journal:

Stating that there are an estimated six million adoptees and several hundred thousand foster children in the U. S., Gay's informative overview explains the difference between adoption and foster care, provides a brief history, and surveys controversial topics (open adoption, racially mixed foster and adoptive families, etc.). Anecdotes, primarily of caregivers, enliven and personalize the objective text. With poor quality black-and-white photos, this only supplements already existing material. --Marguerite F. Raybould, Glendale Public Library, CA
