A Longitudinal Study of Family Structure and Size and Adoption Outcomes.
Barth, Richard P.; Brooks, Devon
Adoption Quarterly, v1 n1 p29-56 1997
This follow-up study of international and domestic adoptions, involving participants first studied in 1981, investigated the role of family size and structure, particularly the presence of both biological and adopted children in a family, on adoption outcomes. Data suggested that families who adopt children and have birth children may have less success than families comprised only of adopted children. (EV)
