Before Deciding on a Interracial Adoption - Transracial Adoptions and Family Life | Adoption Of Aboriginal Children | Scoop.it
Is an interracial adoption for you and your family? What are some things to consider before making your final decision on an interracial adoption?
Bijou's insight:

Choosing an interracial adoption, adopting outside your own race, is a big decision. It's also a big controversy as many people are against it. Questions remain as to whether a white family, for example, can properly prepare a black child for dealing with racism.

An Aboriginal Child Placement Principle? | ALRC

349. The Child’s Welfare as ‘Paramount Consideration’. In general, decisions on the custody or placement of children are based on a single undifferentiated rule, directing attention to the ‘best interests of the child’ as the paramount consideration. The ‘paramount consideration’ applied in all cases of child custody can be illustrated by a clause common to State and Territory adoption legislation. The Adoption of Children Ordinance 1965 (ACT) s 15 states that: ‘For all purposes of this Part, the welfare and interests of the child concerned shall be regarded as the paramount consideration’.[35] This principle (commonly referred to as the ‘welfare principle’) is also applied under the Family Law Act 1975.[36] and in cases in State courts involving custody disputes over children. It is also relevant to decisions on fostering and placement of children in institutional care under State child welfare legislation (although it is not always spelt out expressly in the legislation).
