Conceptions of Family and Adoption among Older Adoptees.
Sherrill, Caroline L.; Pinderhughes, Ellen E.
Adoption Quarterly, v2 n4 p21-47 1999
Compared conceptions of family and adoption in older adoptees and nonadopted peers. Found that older adoptees were more likely to accept and view as typical nontraditional family constellations. Adoptees with more foster-care experience and those living in the adoptive home longer displayed higher family understanding and a more realistic perspective of placement permanence. (Author/KB)
