Outcome of Black Children - White Parents Transracial Adoptions.
Zastrow, Charles H.
The purpose of this study was to investigate the outcomes of placing black and mixed-race children with white couples for adoption. The two more specific objectives were to: a) identify the specific satisfactions derived and difficulties encountered by white parents who adopted a black child; and b) assess the overall outcomes of white couples-black children adoptions. The report includes adoption procedure changes suggested by adoptive parents. An assessment of the overall outcome during the early years following placement indicates that transracil adoptions are as successful as inracial adoptions. This study provides evidence that transracial placements are a desirable form of care, at least during the first few years following placement, for the large number of parentless black children.
