Transition to Parenthood in Adoptive Families.
Levy-Shiff, Rachel; And Others
Developmental Psychology, v27 n1 p131-40 Jan 1991
Compared the transitions to adoptive and biological parenthood. Adoptive parents had more positive expectations and satisfying experiences than biological parents. Expectations and depressive mood predicted parental experiences for both groups; ego strength for biological parents; and feelings of deprivation, social support, and self-concept for adoptive parents.
