Are Adopted Children and Their Parents at Greater Risk for Negative Outcomes?
Borders, L. DiAnne; Black, Lynda K.; Pasley, B. Kay
Family Relations, v47 n3 p237-41 Jul 1998
Adoptive (n=72) and biological (n=72) parents' responses on items related to their own well-being, attitudes toward family life, parenting behaviors and values, and perceptions of their child's behaviors were compared. No differences were found. Findings challenge pathological assumptions about adoptive families, suggesting that deficiency models are inadequate. (Author/EMK)
