Hollingsworth, Leslie Doty
Family Relations, v52 n2 p161-66 Apr 2003
The purpose of this study was to examine the attitudes of the general public with regard to the acceptability of adoptive parents changing their minds and returning an adopted child who, after placement, had severe behavior problems. Results revealed that only 23% believed parents should be permitted to return an adopted child when the child has severe behavior problems. (Contains 47 references and 2 tables.) (GCP)
