Cushman, Linda F.; And Others
Social Work, v38 n3 p264-72 May 1993
Examined experiences of 215 young birthmothers who placed their infants for adoption through 30 maternity residences and agencies in 13 states. Examined prebirth services they received, their immediate postbirth experiences, and characteristics of their adoption arrangements. Found that several service-procedural variables were related to social-psychological outcomes for birthmothers at six months after the birth. (Author/NB)
