Adoption Quarterly, v4 n1 p67-80 2000
Compared adjustment of large versus conventional sized adoptive families rearing children with disabilities. Found that parents of large families functioned as well or better than parents of conventional-sized families with regard to family strengths, disharmony, marital adjustment, and adjustment to adopted child. Concluded that placement should not exhibit bias against placing multiple children with disabilities in the same family. (Author/KB)
