Adoptees' Portrayal of the Development of Family Structure.
Sobol, Michael P.; And Others
Journal of Youth and Adolescence, v23 n3 p385-401 Jun 1994
Young adult adoptees (n=48) and nonadoptees (n=72) provided retrospective accounts of family relationships that portrayed adoptive families as more cohesive and adaptable, with greater closeness before adolescence. Results are considered in terms of discontinuities of observations of adoptive families and adoptees' personal reflections. (SLD)
