Adoption as the Agency Sees It

By Helen Fradkin

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, December 1951

The author presents the philosophy, policies and methodology of the Free Synagogue Child Adoption Committee of New York in the practice of adoption services. She explains that while adoption services used to be seen paternalistically, seeking merely to find families of economic means to adopt "unfortunate orphans," current practice takes all the child's needs into account, including the emotional and social attributes of would-be adoptive families.
