Making a "Real" Family: Matching and Cultural Biologism in American Adoption.
Modell, Judith; Dambacher, Naomi
Adoption Quarterly, v1 n2 p3-33 1997
Discusses the policy of matching as it has influenced American adoption practice. Discusses how, as race became the primary criterion of likeness, matching linked adoption with broader issues in American culture and politics. Explores future interconnections between racial matching, genetic engineering, and ideologies of "biological destiny" reappearing in American culture. (Author)
