The Effects on Adopters of Adoption without Parental Consent.
Ryburn, Murray
Early Child Development and Care, v134 p103-19 Jul 1997
Examined effects on 74 adopters of participation in a court contest of adoption orders. Also explored effects of the nature of the hearings on availability of information and well-being of adopters. Found that the adversarial process did not lead to minimal levels of postadoption contact between biological and adoptive parents but was still severely stressful for prospective adopters. (JPB)
