It is hereby declared to be the policy of this state to identify and encourage the adoption of certain hard-to-place children now living in or likely to be placed in foster homes or institutions, and to secure for such children the benefits and security of permanent homes in which such children can receive continuous parental care, guidance, protection and love, and to reduce the number of such children who must be placed or remain in foster homes or institutions until they become adults.
