I conducted my Ph.D dissertation in the field of adoption of children. My research discussed the judges' and social workers' discretion in deciding to surrender a child for adoption without parental consent due to parental incapacity. Those cases are characterized by their unique and harsh circumstances of poverty, social neglect, disability and therefore questions of the best interests of a child and his/or her parents were discussed.
