Adoption has been heavily criticized recently as an outdated social institution. This book argues that it is still the best solution to a significant social problem, but that its limits and possibilities, as opposed to natural parenthood, need to be more fully understood and appreciated. Rosenberg examines the process and results of adoption from the perspective of each of the three main parties - the adopters, the adoptees and the original parents. She describes the problems of adjustment and explores the types of relationship that can develop between each of the three parties. She also includes a clinical analysis of the psychological effects of adoption.
