Procedures are strictly controlled by law and the child’s new status is given formal recognition by the court. A new birth certificate replaces the child’s original birth certificate. Adopting parents are carefully vetted by an adoption agency and are usually childless couples, a step-parent or a natural parent such as the unmarried father of the child. Until the 1960s most children offered for adoption were young babies, but since the stigma of having a baby out of wedlock no longer applies in most cultural groups there are few very young babies available to be adopted.
It is interesting to note that the number of step-families in the 19th century was as high as it is today but this was due to the early death of one partner rather than an ever-escalating divorce rate. The National Stepfamily Association (now merged with Parentline) estimates that 1 in 12 children under 16 years old are part of a step-family, approximately 1,500,000 children, and there will probably be more step-families than nuclear ones by 2010. These families, by definition, will be larger than nuclear families and the age gaps between step-siblings and half-siblings will be greater.

Research seems to suggest that, the earlier the parents are involved in the child’s education, the longer this involvement lasts.
