'We've always been fairly fortunate in being able to place children." The difficulty is with older children, the handicap- ped and mixed-race children, he said, 'There are not an awful lot of these available for adoption, and for obvious reasons we're not looking too hard for adoplive homes for 16 and 17 year olds.11 "A couple of years ago we were short of adoption homes [or infants, especially boys. But the number of children coming into eare by surrender has dropped." Mr. Bracken explained this was the official term used CAM DUACKEN "when an unwed mother sur- renders a child for adoption and it becomes a ward of the crown and free for adoption placement." "This is how the largest num- ber of children arc coming in for adoption." The other usual way is when children are made permanent wards of the crown through the court The department, he said, pro- vides child protection services under the Child Welfare Act.
