ABSTRACT
The article covers issues related to adoption and foster care in Great Britain as of December 2006. The British Agencies for Adoption and Fostering (BAAF) had taken the initiative to give clear messages about how intercountry adoption works in Great Britain following the high level of interest in the adoption of a boy from Malawi by singer Madonna. Four working groups have been established to consider some of the main ideas about children in care in the green paper "Care Matters."
