Aside from the various points enumerated, KLG allows for some maintenance of family ties, which might be especially valuable if, for example, the bio-parents mature and stabilize and after a few years are in a position to be of value to the child. Adoption has its merits, and there is a shortage of parents willing to adopt (especially children with developmental problems), but there is much to be said for maintaining some degree of family continuity unless abuse and neglect have been extreme.
