Chosen Children

Top of page

There just aren't enough babies to go around, Fred Davis learns as he visits the adoption centre of a Montréal welfare agency. That is the chief reason for the delays and difficulties encountered by couples who wish to adopt a child. A welfare official explains adoption procedures and how every effort is made to suit the child to the parents. Fred drops in on a family who, for the second time, are preparing to welcome a chosen child.
