Short-Term Consequences of Parenting versus Adoption among Young Unmarried Women.
Kalmuss, Debra; And Others
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v54 n1 p80-90 Feb 1992
Assessed short-term consequences of parenting versus placing for adoption among 527 young, unmarried, pregnant women interviewed during final trimester of pregnancy and again at 6 months postbirth. Both groups were relatively comfortable with their pregnancy resolution decisions. Placers were less comfortable with their decision, fared better on sociodemographic outcomes, and were indistinguishable from parenters on social psychological outcomes. (Author/NB)
