The present book titled "Human Rights of the Adopted Girl Child" has focused attention on the status of the adopted girl child. The study gives insight in to the social profile of the adoptive couples, who have adopted a girl child. The study examines the procedure of adoption, the role of adoption agencies and adoption workers in completing the socio-legal procedure of adoption. The present study is a small effort to analyse the difficulties that are faced by the adoptive couple and the adoption social worker and to suggest some measures, which may help to overcome the various problems of girl child adoption.
The book points out the need for uniform adoption law to facilitate the non-Hindu parents to go in for adoption with complete legal protection for them and the adopted child. This indicates the "need for social work intervention in practicing human rights of the child". Parenthood by Adoption is a unique experience. The child's need for a warm home is fulfilled by the act of adoption thus protecting human rights of the child. Organised efforts on the part of the professionals to facilitate adoption through promotion and intervention and to bring about a change in people's thinking. Adoption as an Institution for protecting Child Rights needs to be accepted openly by the society.
