Subject:Urban-Rural Child Placement and Adoption

I am looking for scholarly work focused on the experience of older children from inner cities placed in foster or adoptive care in rural communities. The majority of literature I've seen focuses primarily on international adoption and trans-racial care, but very little on cross cultural domestic care. Can anyone recommend any work focusing on the experience of older children placed in different cultures in domestic adoption and foster care? Thanks for your help. --
