In light of the dark history of forced, coerced and closed adoption, current adoption policies and practises were implemented, however little research has been undertaken to determine whether today's practises are more effective in meeting the needs of women and their children.

Real Choices Australia believes that research into the experiences of mothers and fathers who consent to adoption of their children today is imperative before further policy changes or expansion of adoption practises are implemented.

Real Choices Australia is conducting research into contemporary adoption practises, both within cross cultural studies and Australian open adoption processes.
