WHILE families celebrate the festive season, 130 children await adoption in the territory's institutions. Most of them come from unstable family backgrounds or have drug addicted parents, and many suffer from mental problems or physical handicaps. About 120 children and babies are placed each year, with one in eight going to families overseas. Donald Lam Ping-kuen, of the Social Welfare Department, said it hoped to find homes for more than 90 per cent of the children within three months. 'Hong Kong society is perhaps becoming more caring. People are not as conservative as before. In the past, some people were a little selfish and thought their children should be the best in the world. They would not tolerate children with problems or those with handicaps. 'But there has been a change in attitude.' he said.
