As part of the discussion of this phenomena, certain aspects of Irish practice, some historical and some more contemporary are summarised briefly. This paper is based on a review of the limited literature, an examination of web based materials and interviews with a select group of adoption professionals. Through this exploration, the benefits, implications, challenges and opportunities for adoption practice are considered.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Irish Association of Social Workers||Journal:||Irish Social Worker||Issue:||Spring 2013||Start page:||21||End page:||28||Copyright (published version):||IASW 2013||Keywords:||Adoption; Social networking; Search and reunion||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed|
