Hoksbergen, Rene A. C.
Adoption Quarterly, v3 n2 p29-41 1999
Reviewed studies from three countries comparing child outcomes in an adoptive family to outcomes if the child had remained in his or her biological family or in an institutional setting. Found that adopted children seem to function better than children either in institutions or restored to their biological family. (DLH)
