Glidden, Laraine Masters; Pursley, Jean T.
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v94 n3 p272-77 Nov 1989
A survey of families who had adopted mentally retarded children approximately 5 years earlier found good family adjustment, with only 2 of 44 children not living with their adoptive/foster parents for reasons related to adjustment difficulties. The families had adopted or were fostering 12 additional children, 11 with handicapping conditions. (Author/JDD)
