This report presents the findings of a longitudinal study that followed up a group of adopted children, their adoptive parents and birth relatives, where some form of post-adoption contact was planned. It presents a strong body of evidence about the impact of open adoption on all those involved, and on how children’s experiences of, and need for, contact change as they grow and develop.

"I congratulate BAAF on the quality and effectiveness of their publications. They are well researched, clear, informative and unwaveringly focused on the wellbeing of children and families. They are also so imaginatively presented it becomes impossible not to be drawn into them. This is a great achievement and I wish BAAF continued success in this important work".
