The American Adoption of Indian Children from Mother Theresa's Orphanages: The Parents.
Goodman, Joan F.; Kim, Stacy
Adoption Quarterly, v3 n2 p5-27 1999
Explored the backgrounds and personal motives of 70 families who adopted Indian children in the late 1970s and 1980s. Focused on what kind of people seek to adopt children of another ethnic group and with a higher likelihood of chronic disabilities. Found strong resemblance to altruists and rescuers of Holocaust victims. (Author/DLH)
