Summary: An extraordinary book. Chilling, inspiring, and utterly convincing, it creates an ironclad case for the adoption solution. --Sylvia Ann Hewlett, coauthor ofThe War Against Parents ''Bartholet sounds the alarm on the savage consequences the child welfare system has on so many children and challenges us to confront the reality that substance abuse . . . is the culprit in most cases of child abuse and neglect. Everyone who cares about our nation's most vulnerable children should read t ...show morehis book.'' --Joseph A. Califano, Jr., president, The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University ''Blood and race remain the over-riding factors in determining the future of suffering children. This should be required reading for those who look on adoption as the last resort.'' --Mary McGrory,Washington Postcolumnist ''Bartholet is a passionate crusader on behalf of children, and brings to her subject vigorous, clear-headed prose and the moral authority of her professional dedication.'' --Ann-Janine Morey,Chicago Tribune ''Bartholet issues a strong challenge to the child welfare system to facilitate adoption of children who have been abused and neglected...All people concerned about the healthy development of children should readNobody's Children.

Metzenbaum (ret.), author of theMultiethnic Placement Act ''A disturbing look at how the lives of 'America's modern-day orphans' are sacrificed for the often unrealistic goal of keeping troubled families together. . . . The author makes her case intelligently, fearlessly, and exhaustively.'' --Kirkus Reviews ...show less
