Children adoption in Lithuania: situation and standpoint

The main socialisation institute of a child without a family is an asylum. The child comes with a definite experience of social life and cultural basis. But the parents are still not making efforts to acknowledge that the child has equal rights as a partner of the general activities and to make conditions for his wide activities. The institutions shall attempt to create for the child without a family the conditions for the communication with adults and other children of the same age.
