This newsletter theme issue addresses adoption and the young child's life. Contributors suggest ways in which practitioners in many professions and settings can better understand and support adoptive families. The first article, "Adoption, 1990" by Barbara F. Nordhaus and Albert J. Solnit, reviews the history of adoption and notes obstacles to serving the best interests of the child and such controversies as open adoption. The second article, "On Adoption" by T. Berry Brazelton, looks at the stresses on the adoptive parent and offers answers to children's questions about adoption. Remaining articles have the following titles and authors: "And Baby Makes Two: Adoption and the Single Parent" (Deane Argenta); "The 'Psychological Work of Pregnancy' in Adoption (Anne Williams); and Preventive-Intervention Groups with Adoptive Parents and Their Babies: Minimizing the Risks to Emotional Development in the First Three Years" (Elaine Frank and Denise Rowe). Also included in this issue is the 1989 report of the National Center for Clinical Infant Programs which covers Center activities, a financial statement, and a list of contributors. (DB)
