A Sociopsychological Investigation of Adult Adoptees' Search for Birth Parents.
Sobol, Michael P.; Cardiff, Jeanette
Family Relations, v32 n4 p477-83 Oct 1983
Surveyed 120 adult adoptees to study factors predicting search activity. Results showed searching for birth parents was related to traumatic adoption revelation, desire to know geneological history, and poor self-concept. Nonsearchers stated they did not search because of fear of hurting adoptive or birth parents and satisfaction with identity. (JAC)
