Adoption and Identity.
Lieberman, E. James
Adoption Quarterly, v2 n2 p1-5 1998
Discusses how adoption responds to ancient questions about origins. Maintains that one's identity hinges on actual relationships more than on pedigree and genes. Discusses reasons for informing a child about his or her adoption. Suggests that adoption is a constructive process involving too many worrisome warnings and anxiety-raising advice by the industry and its experts. Notes biases against adoption. (KB)
