What are we doing next?

The interviews with the adoptive, birth, and foster parents told us how they thought the children were getting on.  But what do the children themselves have to say about this?  What do they think about being in care?  What do they feel is their home?  Where do they feel they belong?  How do they feel about contact?  This is what we are looking at in the next part of the study called The Children’s Perspective
