Child welfare advocates concerned about the well-being of children of color are waiting to see what impact the Adoption and Safe Families Act (ASFA) of 1997 will have on this highly vulnerable group. Workers' perceptions of the impact of ASFA on children and families were the focus of this national survey. The results of the study indicate that children of color and their families may be among the groups who are most affected by the new legislation. Practice and policy implications are offered.
