Due to the circumstances that lead to care, clients seeking care may face adhesion disorders or other physical or psychological problems of the adopted child. Promoting adoption services and publications often refer to “annex problems.” While practitioners support clients who hope to encourage (and ultimately take care of) them, clients need to advise on the serious problems that children in care may face. Among the problems of the facility: the lawyer should point out to prospective adoptive parents that the best way to meet the unique needs of the children in care is to ensure that a complete preparation is carried out.

In a New York case, the court required the parties to prove a parent-child relationship, even thinking that the status did not have such a requirement.43 Some states, but not all, also have a procedure for enforcing contact agreements after adoption.
