As a former administrator for the Los Angeles County Department of Adoptions, I decry the present situation created by laws, legislators and judges which prevent placement of children for adoption. Los Angeles County was a model adoption agency in the United States and around the world. In three years with new legislation and reorganization, the placement of children faces gridlock. The recent laws need to be reviewed and amended or rescinded and placement of children returned to the social work professionals who know best how to place the children.

Re "Adoption Push Helps Many but Has Critics," Sept. 15: Although James Rainey informs readers that would-be parents still have several obstacles to face, including the older ages of many children available through the county, his candid piece of writing encourages potential parents to explore and consider public adoption. Bravo! My husband and I have two children whom we adopted through the Los Angeles County Department of Adoptions before adding our two biological children. Seven weeks ago, I was rushed to Harbor UCLA's intensive care unit for an operation to remove a life-threatening subdural hematoma.

Maury Foladare, veteran Hollywood publicist for such legends as Bing Crosby and Danny Thomas, has died. He was 86. He died Saturday night at the Motion Picture and Television Hospital in Woodland Hills. Beloved by news media as well as entertainers, Foladare was known as one Hollywood source who could be trusted. "I never wrote a phony story in my life," he told The Times a few years ago.

When a truck delivers 130 diapers to Pete and Patti Bova's Burbank town house this week, the Bova's all-time diaper total will reach 108,160--give or take a hundred hampers full. The Bovas like babies, which is good, since their household has literally been crawling with them for the last 16 years. As temporary foster parents, the Bovas have been blessed with the pitter-patter of 96 pairs of little feet--in addition to their own two children.

Women usually choose to breast-feed because of the potential nutritional and immunological benefits or to bond closely with their babies. But adoptive mothers have another compelling reason--to experience a physical aspect of motherhood, since they missed out on pregnancy and birth. The number of adoptive mothers trying to breast-feed is small but increasing, according to the Lactation Institute in Encino.

Maury Foladare tipped his golf cap, the blue one bearing the logo of the Crosby tournament at Bermuda Run, N.C. Foladare, four months shy of his 80th birthday and a Hollywood publicist for 56 years, isn't one to let a chance to plug the tourney slip away. And, after all, he's been on the Crosby payroll since Bing Crosby and the Rhythm Boys were wowing them at the Cocoanut Grove. It was 1930, Foladare recalled, when he met Crosby.
