By Sarah Meakings, Amanda Jane Coffey and Katherine Helen Shelton

Abstract

This article draws on the findings from a national adoption study to examine the characteristics and experiences of children recently placed for adoption. With a focus on relevance to health visiting, it considers the early concerns, support needs and experiences of newly formed adoptive families, and examines the role health visitors play in supporting these families, as part of routine health intervention for children
