Adoption and Assisted Reproduction.
Adoption and Assisted Reproduction cover image By Madelyn Freudnlich.
Washington, DC: Child Welfare League of America, ©2001.
Series: Adoption and Ethics; v. 4.
"The growing use of assisted reproduction, including sperm donation, gamete donation, and surrogate motherhood, has raised a number of ethical issues in common with adoption. These issues include the parties' legal and social roles, anonomity, and concerns related to the growing role of money and power of market forces in each area. This book reviews not only the available literature, but the wide range and outcomes of current case law and statutes. This book provides the foundation upon which to base policy and practice in this evolving area of adoption practice." (publisher's description)

Adoption in America: Historical Perspectives cover image By E. Wayne Carp.
Ann Arbor, MI: The University of Michigan Press, ©2002.
"Adoption affects an estimated 60 percent of Americans, but despite its pervasiveness, this social institution has been little examined and poorly understood. Adoption in America gathers essays on the history of adoptions and orphanages in the United States. Offering provocative interpretations of a variety of issues, including antebellum adoption and orphanages changing conceptions of adoption in late-nineteenth-century novels Progressive Era reform and adoptive mothers the politics of "matching" adoptive parents with children the radical effect of World War II on adoption practices religion and the reform of adoption and the construction of birth mother and adoptee identities, the essays in Adoption in America will be debated for many years to come."

Birthmarks: Transracial Adoption in Contemporary America.
BirthMarks: Transracial Adoption in Contemporary America cover image By Sandra Patton.
New York, NY: New York University Press, 2000.
"Through in-depth interviews with adult transracial adoptees, as well as with social workers in adoption agencies, Sandra Patton, herself an adoptee, explores the social construction of race, identity, gender, and family and the ways in which these interact with public policy about adoption. Patton offers a compelling overview of the issues at stake in transracial adoption. She discusses recent changes in adoption and social welfare policy which prohibit consideration of race in the placement of children, as well as public policy definitions of 'bad mothers' which can foster coerced aspects of adoption, to show how the lives of transracial adoptees have been shaped by the policies of the U.S. child welfare system.
Neither an argument for nor against the practice of transracial adoption, BirthMarks seeks to counter the dominant public view of this practice as a panacea to the so-called "epidemic" of illegitimacy and the misfortune of infertility among the middle class with a more nuanced view that gives voice to those directly involved, shedding light on the ways in which Black and multiracial adoptees articulate their own identity experiences."

Children and Youth in Adoption, Orphanages, and Foster Care: A Historical Handbook and Guide.
Children and Youth in Adoption, Orphanages, and Foster Care: A Historical Handbook and Guide cover image Edited by Lori Askeland.
Westport, CN: Greenwood Press, 2006.
Series: Children and Youth.
"Adoption and foster care is a new and burgeoning area of historical and interdisciplinary research. Too often, however, birth parents, adoptive parents and foster parents, social workers, and the children themselves have been either ignored or demonized. This authoritative and accessible work is the first comprehensive introductory resource that gives a fuller portrait of the many individuals and groups that have contributed to the perceptions of what children are in need of care. Also discussed is the role of orphanages, the primary institution for children without parents as well as a stopgap measure for poor children needing temporary care. Divided into three sections, original essays review the practice of adoption, orphanage placement, and foster care from the colonial period to the present day. Selected primary documents, including materials by children, as well as an in-depth bibliography section, provide crucial information and insight for high school and college students. Social workers, journalists, and others will also find much value in this historical overview and guide. Star contributors include Elizabeth Bartholet, Marilyn Irvin Holt, Martha Satz, and Claudia Nelson." (publisher's description)

Clinical and Practice Issues in Adoption: Bridging the Gap between Adoptees Placed as Infants and as Older Children cover image Edited by Victor Groza and Karen F. Rosenberg.
Westport, CN: Bergin & Garvey, ©2001.
"Experts representing practitioners, researchers, advocates, and triad members, explore the similarities and differences between adoptees placed as infants and as older children. The book promotes better integration of theory, practice, policy, and research in working with clients who are members of the adoption triad: adoptees, birth parents, and adoptive families. For the first time, the separate practice areas are bridged, pointing out the significant overlap between the two populations and the similar interventions that can be used when working with adoptees regardless of their age at placement."

Complex Adoption and Assisted Reproductive Technology: A Developmental Approach to Clinical Practice.
By Vivian B. Shapiro, Janet R. Shapiro, and Isabel H. Paret; with a foreword by Nancy Boyd Webb.
Complex Adoption and Assisted Reproductive Technology: A Developmental Approach to Clinical Practice cover image New York, NY: Guilford Press, ©2001.
Series: Social Work Practice with Children and Families.
"This volume addresses the special set of issues that arise in therapeutic work with parents and children in families formed through complex adoption and assisted reproductive technology (ART). The authors describe the wide range of new options that are available to couples and single adults, including those who face medical or social barriers to parenthood. In the area of adoption, thousands of children in foster and institutional care in the United States and abroad are awaiting permanent placements. Open adoption, kinship adoption, and transracial adoption are transforming family life, as is the use of ART, which raises many issues of family identity and family process. Key themes explored include the significance of early experience, the capacity to recover from exposure to trauma, the impact of heredity and the difference that environment can make, and the centrality of primary attachment relationships. Also discussed are issues affecting lesbian and gay families and other families of difference. Combining in-depth case material with a vast body of developmental, clinical, and ecological research, the book provides an integrative framework for clinical practice. It also spells out new ideas and future directions for training and research." (publisher's description)

The Connected Child: Bring Hope and Healing to Your Adoptive Family.
The Connected Child: Bring Hope and Healing to Your Adoptive Family cover image By Karyn Brand Purvis, David R. Cross, and Wendy Lyons Sunshine.
New York, NY: McGraw-Hill, ©2007.
"The Connected Child is the literary equivalent of an airline oxygen mask and instructions: place the mask over your own face first, then over the nose of your child. This book first assists the parent, saying, in effect, 'Calm down, you're not the first mom or dad in the world to face this hurdle, breathe deeply, then follow these simple steps.' The sense of not facing these issues alone -- the relief that your child's behavior is not off the charts -- is hugely comforting. Other children have behaved this way; other parents have responded thusly; welcome to the community of therapeutic and joyful adoptive families." (publisher's description)

Cultures of Transnational Adoption.
Cultures of Transnational Adoption cover image Edited by Toby Alice Volkman.
Durham, NC: Duke University Press, 2005.
"During the 1990s, the number of children adopted from poorer countries to the more affluent West grew exponentially. Close to 140,000 transnational adoptions occurred in the United States alone. While in an earlier era, adoption across borders was assumed to be straightforward--a child traveled to a new country and stayed there--by the late twentieth century, adoptees were expected to acquaint themselves with the countries of their birth and explore their multiple identities. Listservs, Web sites, and organizations creating international communities of adoptive parents and adoptees proliferated. With contributors including several adoptive parents, this unique collection looks at how transnational adoption creates and transforms cultures.
The cultural experiences considered in this volume raise important questions about race and nation; about kinship, biology, and belonging; and about the politics of the sending and receiving nations. Several essayists explore the images and narratives related to transnational adoption. Others examine the recent preoccupation with "roots" and "birth cultures." They describe a trip during which a group of Chilean adoptees and their Swedish parents traveled "home" to Chile, the "culture camps" attended by thousands of young-adult Korean adoptees whom South Korea is now eager to reclaim as "overseas Koreans," and adopted children from China and their North American parents grappling with the question of what "Chinese" or "Chinese American" identity might mean. Essays on Korean birth mothers, Chinese parents who adopt children within China, and the circulation of children in Brazilian families reveal the complexities surrounding adoption within the so-called sending countries. Together, the contributors trace the new geographies of kinship and belonging created by transnational adoption." (publisher's description)

Eastern European Adoption: Policies, Practice, and Strategies for Change.
By Josephine A. Ruggiero.
New Brunswick, NJ: Transaction Publishers, ©2007.
Eastern European Adoption: Policies, Practice, and Strategies for Change cover image "This volume addresses adoption policies and practices as they pertain to adopted children from Eastern Europe, children who have histories of 'pre-adoption adversity.' Drawing on her decade-long experience as an adoptive parent of siblings born in Russia and her expertise as an applied sociologist, Josephine Ruggiero examines the central issues involved in international adoptions, focusing on older children as well as siblings, and suggesting needed changes in policy and practice.
Only about three in ten Russian adoptees joined their new families as infants. Pre-adoption experiences are also significant factors in a child's ability to adjust and function well in a new family. Countries differ in risk factors that may figure into the likelihood of adoptees adapting to life in a new family. Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, serious medical conditions, emotional problems, behavioral problems, attachment issues, learning disabilities, and exposure to family violence must be considered as potential risk factors in adoptions. Pre-adoption adversity is less likely when children come from birth families that are economically poor but have bonded with them.
At a time when adoption has finally 'come out of the closet' and the definition of the family is changing dramatically, Eastern European Adoption takes a much-needed look at current adoption policies and practices and how well they do or do not work. Ruggiero draws on the literature on older-child and sibling adoption, and data from a questionnaire survey she designed and conducted with 121 adoptive parents. Ruggiero's examples from real adoptive families give a human face to the issues, needs, and strategies she discusses." (publisher's description)

London, UK; New York, NY: Routledge, 2008.
"Demonstrating how psychoanalytic understanding and treatment can contribute to thinking about and working with adopted children and their families, this book illustrates how psychoanalytic psychotherapy can help both as a treatment and as a distinctive source of understanding for children who are either in the process of being adopted or already adopted. The book explores the nature and experiences of children placed for adoption, and how these shape and are shaped by unconscious processes in the child's inner world." (publisher's description)

Families by Law: An Adoption Reader.
Families by Law: An Adoption Reader cover image Edited by Naomi R. Cahn and Joan Heifetz Hollinger.
New York, NY: New York University Press, ©2004.
"Families by Law brings together diverse perspectives on contemporary aspects of adoption law and practice. Following a historical overview of adoption in American law and society, the reader presents different responses to concerns about who may place children for adoption, the status of birth parents, who may adopt, and the legal and psychosocial consequences of adoption. The new frontiers of adoption are explored: from transracial and intercountry adoption, adoption by same sex couples, and the adoption of children with special needs, to the movements for opening records and maintaining post-adoption contact between adoptive and birth families. The relationship between adoption and assisted reproductive technologies is discussed, as are feminist, economic, and philosophical perspectives on adoption and procreation. The volume includes statutes and cases, advocacy organization statements, and pieces from legal scholars, social scientists, philosophers, psychologists, and sociologists in order to provide a wealth of information about the contemporary dimensions of adoption."

Gay Men Choosing Parenthood.
By Gerald P. Mallon.
New York, NY: Columbia University Press, ©2004.
"Using a 'decidedly gay-affirming lens' that does not assume heterosexuality is the norm, Mallon's study of gay parenthood employs case studies and interviews to illuminate its subject. The author, an associate professor of social work at Hunter College, examines the factors that contribute to the changes in gay men's lives once they become parents and offers suggestions as to why these changes should impact the child welfare system and professionals who work in the human services fields. Focusing on dads in New York and Los Angeles and using cogent, non-technical prose, Mallon explores issues such as the initial reactions to bringing a new child home, community responses to gay dads and gender politics. He also provides insight into the emotions common to gay men who choose to become parents. His study should enlighten psychologists, policy makers and anyone working in the field of childcare and the legal and social institutions surrounding it." (publisher's description)

The Girls Who Went Away: The Hidden History of Women who Surrendered Children for Adoption in the Decades before Roe v. Wade.
The Girls Who Went Away: The Hidden History of Women who Surrendered Children for Adoption in the Decades before Roe v. Wade cover image By Ann Fessler.
New York, NY: Penguin Press, 2006.
"This book brings to light the lives of 1.5 million single American women in the years following World War II who, under enormous social and family pressure, were coerced to give up their newborn children. It tells not of wild and carefree sexual liberation, but rather of a devastating double standard that has had punishing long-term effects on these women and on the children they gave up. Single pregnant women were shunned by family and friends, evicted from schools, sent away to maternity homes to have their children alone, and often treated with cold contempt by doctors, nurses, and clergy. The majority of the women interviewed by Fessler, herself an adoptee, have never spoken of their experiences, and most have been haunted by grief and shame their entire adult lives."

Homo Domesticus: Notes from a Same-Sex Marriage.
Homo Domesticus: Notes from a Same-Sex Marriage cover image By David Valdes Greenwood.
Cambridge, MA: Da Capo Life Long, 2007.
"What happens when you pair a romantic with a nonromantic? Where does the twain meet when you like to wow your lover with an original song and he thinks a bar of soap is a thoughtful gift? In his charming, often hilarious account of his decade-long relationship with his boyfriend (now husband), journalist David Valdes Greenwood sets the record straight on gay marriage, playfully disarming the arguments against it. Here are the highpoints (and some low points) that chart any good relationship: from the first blush of romance; to meeting the in-laws; to forgetting your pants at your own wedding; to figuring out in those first years that "life as a couple is all about discovering just how many things you can approach differently without actually killing each other"; and finally, of sharing that first great love, a child.
Poignant and smart, these notes from a same-sex marriage will strike a chord with anyone who has ever known just how outrageous, challenging, and maddeningly wonderful the ties of love can be, no matter what configuration your family." (publisher's description)

In Their Parents' Voices: Reflections on Raising Transracial Adoptees.
In their Parents' Voices: Reflections on Raising Transracial Adoptees cover image By Rita J. Simon and Rhonda M. Roorda.
New York, NY: Columbia University Press, ©2007.
"Rita J. Simon and Rhonda M. Roorda's In Their Own Voices: Transracial Adoptees Tell Their Stories shared the experiences of twenty-four black and biracial children who had been adopted into white families in the late 1960s and 70s. The book has since become a standard resource for families and practitioners, and now, in this sequel, we hear from the parents of these remarkable families and learn what it was like for them to raise children across racial and cultural lines.
These candid interviews shed light on the issues these parents encountered, what part race played during thirty plus years of parenting, what they learned about themselves, and whether they would recommend transracial adoption to others. Combining trenchant historical and political data with absorbing firsthand accounts, Simon and Roorda once more bring an academic and human dimension to the literature on transracial adoption."

New York, NY: Columbia University Press, ©2009.
"In Their Siblings' Voices shares the stories of twenty white non-adopted siblings who grew up with black or biracial brothers and sisters in the late 1960s and 1970s. Belonging to the same families profiled in Rita J. Simon and Rhonda M. Roorda's In Their Own Voices: Transracial Adoptees Tell Their Stories and In Their Parents' Voices: Reflections on Raising Transracial Adoptees, these siblings offer their perspectives on the multiracial adoption experience, which, for them, played out against the backdrop of two tumultuous, politically charged decades. Simon and Roorda question whether professionals and adoption agencies adequately trained these children in the challenges presented by blended families, and they ask if, after more than thirty years, race still matters. Few books cover both the academic and the human dimensions of this issue. In Their Siblings' Voices helps readers fully grasp the dynamic of living in a multiracial household and its effect on friends, school, and community." (publisher' description)

Insight into Adoption: What Adoptive Parents Need to Know about the Fundamental Differences between a Biological and an Adopted Child--and its Effect on Parenting.
Insight into Adoption: What Adoptive Parents Need to Know about the Fundamental Differences between a Biological and an Adopted Child--and its Effect on Parenting cover image By Barbara Taylor Blomquist.
Springfield, IL: Charles C. Thomas, Publisher, ©2001.
"Adoption is intended to be, and should be, a fulfilling, beautiful, rewarding, and enriching aspect in anyone's life. Many times, however, there are pitfalls and a lack of resources to turn to for help, advice, and answers on the subject. This book deals with these pitfalls which may not be obvious to the unenlightened adoptive parent who was basically handed a child and told to 'Make him your own.' The goal of this book is to help adoptive parents understand some potentially challenging factors so they can deal with them positively and to help parents comprehend the thinking process of their child. It will also be an invaluable resource to social workers, teachers, and counselors so that they may approach their adopted clients in an enlightened way once they understand an adopted child has issues in his life unique to the adoptive process. Adoptive parents reading this book can gain a different insight into their child's reasoning, and this information can be used to avert some potential problems they might otherwise face. It includes all the issues that adoptive families should be told about, and it is based primarily upon real life experiences relating equally to both sexes. In particular, it will apprise the non-adopted person, the adoptive parent, so he can look at the obstacles his adopted child may be facing. Then he, as a parent, can begin to understand his child's behavior. Once the true source of the adopted child's pain is discovered, parents can reach the 'ah, ha' moment we have all experienced. With understanding comes a new attitude and the impetus to change the whole atmosphere from negative to positive. The child and his parents will still have issues to deal with, but the source has been uncovered and issues can be faced openly. Readers will appreciate that the book is designed to flow in the first person as if the author was talking directly with them." (publisher's description)

Inter-Country Adoption: Practical Experiences.
Inter-Country Adoption: Practical Experiences cover image Edited by Michael Humphrey and Heather Humphrey.
London, UK; New York, NY: Tavistock/Routledge, 1993.
"Over the past 20 years, the growing shortage of adoptable infants in the United States and Britain has forced a number of couples to look abroad. Inter-Country Adoption charts the experiences of eight couples who, between them, have adopted 11 children from South America, India and Sri Lanka.
The main emphasis of these firsthand accounts is on the events leading up to the decision to adopt from abroad and on the obstacles involved in dealing with the authorities in Britain and in the child's country of origin. The last two chapters are written by an academic social worker and a parliamentary campaigner who examine the legal and ethical considerations of inter-country adoption." (publisher's description)

"In the past two decades, transnational adoption has exploded in scope and significance, growing up along increasingly globalized economic relations and the development and improvement of reproductive technologies. A complex and understudied system, transnational adoption opens a window onto the relations between nations, the inequalities of the rich and the poor, and the history of race and racialization, Transnational adoption has been marked by the geographies of unequal power, as children move from poorer countries and families to wealthier ones, yet little work has been done to synthesize its complex and sometimes contradictory effects. Rather than focusing only on the United States, as much previous work on the topic does, International Adoption considers the perspectives of a number of sending countries as well as other receiving countries, particularly in Europe. The book also reminds us that the U.S. also sends children into international adoptions--particularly children of color. The book thus complicates the standard scholarly treatment of the subject, which tends to focus on the tensions between those who argue that transnational adoption is an outgrowth of American wealth, power, and military might (as well as a rejection of adoption from domestic foster care) and those who maintain that it is about a desire to help children in need."

Like Our Very Own: Adoption and the Changing Culture of Motherhood, 1851-1950.
By Julie Berebitsky.
Lawrence, KS: University Press of Kansas, ©2000.
"Talk about adoption has become increasingly politicized, as debates swirl around the morality and viability of various forms of adoption: interracial, international, 'open,' and those involving single parents or gay and lesbian couples. Paramount in many minds is the threat to the traditional (or mythical) nuclear family. But, as Julie Berebitsky shows, such concerns are fairly recent developments in the history of adoption.
Berebitsky reveals that in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries the rules governing adoption were much less rigid and adoptive parents and families were considerably more diverse. In Like Our Very Own, she chronicles the experiences of adoptive parents and children during a century of great change, illuminating the prominent role adoption came to play in defining both motherhood and family in America."

Little Strangers: Portrayals of Adoption and Foster Care in America, 1850-1929.
By Claudia Nelson.
Bloomington, IN: Indiana University Press, ©2003.
"When Massachusetts passed America's first comprehensive adoption law in 1851, the usual motive for taking in an unrelated child was presumed to be the need for cheap labor. But by 1929--the first year that every state had an adoption law--the adoptee's main function was seen as emotional. Little Strangers examines the representations of adoption and foster care produced over the intervening years. Claudia Nelson argues that adoption texts reflect changing attitudes toward many important social issues, including immigration and poverty, heredity and environment, individuality and citizenship, gender, and the family. She examines orphan fiction for children, magazine stories and articles, legal writings, social work conference proceedings, and discussions of heredity and child psychology. Nelson's ambitious scope provides for an analysis of the extent to which specialist and mainstream adoption discourse overlapped, as well as the ways in which adoption and foster care had captivated the public imagiation."

Lost & Found: The Adoption Experience, 3rd edition, expanded and updated.
Lost and Found: The Adoption Experience cover image By Betty Jean Lifton.
Ann Arbor, MI: University of Michigan Press, 2009.
Notes: Originally published: New York, NY: Dial Press, 1979.
"The first edition of Betty Jean Lifton's Lost and Found advanced the adoption rights movement in this country in 1979, challenging many states' policies of maintaining closed birth records. For nearly three decades the book has topped recommended reading lists for those who seek to understand the effects of adoption---including adoptees, adoptive parents, birth parents, and their friends and families.
This expanded and updated edition, with new material on the controversies concerning adoption, artificial insemination, and newer reproductive technologies, continues to add to the discussion on this important topic. A new preface and afterword by the author have been added, as well as a greatly expanded resources section that in addition to relevant organizations now lists useful Web sites."

Loving Across the Color Line: A White Adoptive Mother Learns about Race.
Loving Across the Color Line: A White Adoptive Mother Learns about Race cover image By Sharon E. Rush.
Lanham, MD: Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, ©2000.
"What could a liberal, civil rights law professor have to learn about race? When Sharon Rush adopted her African American daughter, she quickly realized just how much she had left to learn. In this heartfelt memoir, the author relates how her loving maternal relationship opened her eyes to the harsh realities of the American racial divide. By living with her daughter through day-to-day encounters, Rush learned that racism is far more devastating to blacks than most whites can ever imagine. Some of the stories are funny, others are sad: a few are almost unbelievable. But they all are poignant because they illustrate how insightful a little black girl can be about race & justice."

Making Babies, Making Families: What Matters Most in an Age of Reproductive Technologies, Surrogacy, Adoption, and Same-Sex and Unwed Parents.
Making Babies, Making Families: What Matters Most in an Age of Reproductive Technologies, Surrogacy, Adoption, and Same-Sex and Unwed Parents cover image By Mary Lyndon Shanley.
Boston, MA: Beacon Press, ©2001.
"Heart-wrenching, high-profile court cases such as the Baby M case have called attention to the troubling consequences of new reproductive technology; the law has yet to catch up with the ways that people create families today. Although these times may appear chaotic and confusing, Mary Shanley shows us that we don't have to be afraid. Her timely work begins by demonstrating that the traditional model of the 'natural,' patriarchal family is outdated, and that the newer contractual model based on equality between adults can lead to questionable results for the child.
Shanley offers a new vision of family law that's based on existing caring relationships of adults for children. It ensures each child's right to be cared for, and takes into account the emotional realities of family life. She applies this practical, humane model to the most complex and controversial issues of our time, including adoption, biological fathers' legal rights, surrogate motherhood, lesbian families, and the rights of sperm and egg donors and recipients."

The Many-Sided Triangle: Adoption in Australia.
The Many-Sided Triangle: Adoption in Australia cover image By Audrey Marshall and Margaret McDonald.
Carlton, Victoria, Australia: Melbourne University Press, 2001.
"A many-sided triangle is the paradoxical image by which this book seeks to capture the complexity of child adoption. A single adoption profoundly touches the lives of so many people-the child itself, the birth mother, the birth father, the adoptive parent or parents, and their relatives and friends. This is the first comprehensive account of the history of adoption in Australia, its law and practice. This is not only an invaluable handbook for all workers, professionals, administrators, teachers and students in the field. It is also a reliable source of information, guidance and comfort for anyone caught up in adoption." (publisher's description)

Series: Adoption and Ethics; v. 2.
"The role of money and power in the context of adoption and the extent of accountability have become critical questions in adoption policy and practice today. These issues arise in three arenas: the adoption of infants in the United States, the adoption of children in foster care, and international adoption. This volume considers each of these in relation to market forces and the role of marketing in adoption both by prospective adoptive parents and adoption professionals." (publisher's description)

Native American Transracial Adoptees Tell Their Stories.
Native American Transracial Adoptees Tell Their Stories cover image By Rita James Simon and Sarah Hernandez.
Lanham, MD: Lexington Books, ©2008.
"This study focuses on the lives of Native American transracial adoptees and their struggle to establish a healthy sense of cultural identity, while being raised in non-Native homes. The twenty participants in this study focus on what methods their adoptive parents used or, in some cases, did not use to help them establish their own sense of cultural identity. In the end, most participants agreed that adoptive parents can help their adoptive child establish a healthy sense of cultural identity by nurturing a connection between their child and their child's tribal community."

Our Son, a Stranger: Adoption Breakdown and its Effects on Parents.
Our Son, a Stranger: Adoption Breakdown and its Effects on Parents cover image By Marie Adams.
Montreal, Canada: McGill-Queen's University Press, ©2002.
"In 1973 Marie and Rod Adams, brimming with idealism and keenly aware of the plight of disadvantaged aboriginal children, adopted Tim, a young Cree boy, two and one half years old. Tim began displaying severe behavioural problems almost immediately, problems that, despite their efforts to find help, only became worse over the years. He left home at the age of twelve and died on the streets when he was twenty-one. Devastated by their loss, the Adams began to search for answers as to why things had gone so horribly wrong. In Our Son, a Stranger Marie Adams describes five white couples whose adoptions of native children failed to meet their expectations. Using her own experiences as background, she casts a critical eye on the "Sixties Scoop" when governments actively encouraged the adoption of native children by non-native parents an estimated 95 per cent of such adoptions failed and discusses why the special issues raised by all trans-racial adoptions need to be carefully considered."

The Politics of Adoption: International Perspectives on Law, Policy & Practice.
By Kerry O'Halloran.
The Politics of Adoption: International Perspectives on Law, Policy and Practice cover image Dordrecht, The Netherlands: Springer, 2006.
"The Politics of Adoption identifies and analyses the fundamental social and legal functions of adoption. It is a timely publication as across the world adoption law reform is now giving rise to contentious issues. The change process underway in England and Wales offers an opportunity and a perspective to explore areas of commonality and difference in the experience of other nations. It also provides a window through which to examine the presumption that within and between cultures there exists a common understanding of what is meant by adoption.
This book offers a comparative analysis of developments in the law, policy and practice of adoption in England and Wales, the US, Australia and Ireland. It explores the global phenomenon of intercountry adoption. The impact of the European Convention and other international legal instruments are assessed and the resulting implications for the future of adoption are considered. It suggests that the more open experience of adoption in indigenous communities such as the Maori of New Zealand, the Aboriginal people of Australia and the Inuit of Canada challenges some of the basic assumptions underpinning adoption law in modern western nations."

The Praeger Handbook of Adoption cover image Westport, CN: Praeger Publishers, 2006.
"Since early times, families have adopted children in all parts of the world. Records describing adoption in Ancient Rome, Babylonia, and China show the similarities and differences to the adoption practices we know today.

Psychological Issues in Adoption: Research and Practice.
Westport, CN: Praeger, 2005.
Psychological Issues in Adoption: Research and Practice cover image Edited by David M. Brodzinsky and Jesús Palacios.
Series: Advances in Applied Developmental Psychology; v. 24.
"In this book, leading researchers spotlight how dramatically the practice of adoption has changed both in North America and Europe in recent decades due to, among other factors, a falling rate of domestically born infants being placed for adoption. This has resulted in a rise in international adoption, children of color being placed with Caucasian parents, increased foster care and special needs adoptions including children exposed to prenatal alcohol and drug use as well as maltreatment by birth parents. Also examined is the far more diverse group of adults being granted adoption rights, including single and homosexual parents. Research findings demonstrate the trend across countries toward open adoption, wherein the birth parents and adoptive parents meet to share information. As the editors note, there is no longer a typical adopted child or a typical adoptive family.
Paralleling these changes has been a growing interest in the study of adopted children and adoptive parents. Although earlier research showed adoptees more likely to experience school problems and psychological disorders, recent studies show the differences in these areas between adoptees and non-adoptees to be relatively small. Models guiding adoption research are beginning to emphasize resilience and positive adaptation, rather than risk and psychopathology. This handbook will be of interest to all involved with adoption policy and practice." (publisher's description)

'Race', Ethnicity, and Adoption.
'Race', Ethnicity, and Adoption cover image By Derek Kirton.
Buckingham, England; Philadelphia, PA: Open University Press, 2000.
Series: Race, Health, and Social Care.
"This text reviews the controversy surrounding the adoption of black and minority ethnic children, either transracially into white families or into matched 'same race' placements. Through analysis of research and the writings of protagonists, the core concepts are explored and located within broader debates on 'race' and the family. The history of the controversy is set out in terms of the competing paradigms offered by liberalism and black radicalism, and more recent 'post-structuralist' influences. The author argues the need to see adoption as inherently political and contested." (publisher's description)

Strangers and Kin: The American Way of Adoption.
By Barbara Melosh.
Strangers and Kin: The American Way of Adoption cover image Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, 2002.
"Strangers and Kin is the history of adoption, a quintessentially American institution in its buoyant optimism, generous spirit, and confidence in social engineering. An adoptive mother herself, Barbara Melosh tells the story of how married couples without children sought to care for and nurture other people's children as their own. It says much about the American experience of family across the twentieth century and our shifting notions of kinship and assimilation. Above all, it speaks of real people striving to make families out of strangers.
In the early twentieth century, childless adults confronted orphanages reluctant to entrust their wards to the kindness of strangers. By the 1930s, however, the recently formed profession of social work claimed a new expertise--the science and art of child placement--and adoption became codified in law. It flourished in the United States, reflecting our ethnic diversity, pluralist ideals, and pragmatic approach to family. Then, in the 1960s, as the sexual revolution reshaped marriage, motherhood, and women's work, adoption became a less attractive option and the number of adoptive families precipitously declined. Taking this history into the early twenty-first century, Melosh offers unflinching insight to the contemporary debates that swirl around adoption: the challenges to adoption secrecy; the ethics and geopolitics of international adoption; and the conflicts over transracial adoption.
This gripping history is told through poignant stories of individuals, garnered from case records long inaccessible to others, and captures the profound losses and joys that make adoption a lifelong process." (publisher's description)

Telling the Truth to Your Adopted or Foster Child: Making Sense of the Past.
Telling the Truth to Your Adopted or Foster Child: Making Sense of the Past cover image By Betsy Keefer and Jayne E. Schooler; illustrations by Jack G. and Kristi Anne Kammer.
Westport, CN: Bergin & Garvey, 2000.
"'Do I have to tell my adopted child the truth?' This is a question that faces every adoptive parent. Filling a much-needed gap in the adoption literature regarding communication with adopted children, Telling the Truth to Your Adopted-Foster Child provides parents with the important knowledge of why adopted children need to know the truth about their past. The authors offer practical guidelines and tools that parents can use in communicating with their children the circumstances of their past. This book presents the developmental stages of how children understand adoption and what needs to be said to a child age appropriately. The authors suggest how to share with children the painful and difficult issues regarding their circumstances, birth family and background. The goal is to provide a gateway into life as emotionally and psychologically healthy adults, with solid foundations for identity and self-esteem." (publisher's description)

Thinking Psychologically about Children Who are Looked After and Adopted: Space for Reflection cover image Edited by Kim S. Golding and others.
Chichester, England; Hoboken, NJ: J. Wiley, ©2006.
"This innovative collection makes thinking psychologically about looked after and adopted children accessible and, in doing so, provides an insight into the world of these children. Informed by research, practice and psychological theory, this volume provides an overview of the area and considers the context for helping children change and develop. It goes on to describe in detail the techniques and approaches used by clinicians, and explains how interventions can be developed and adapted for children and young people living in residential, foster and adoptive care. Careful consideration is also given to carers and families living with these children.
With its multi-disciplinary approach, Thinking Psychologically About Children Who Are Looked After and Adopted will appeal to all professionals involved in the care and education of placed children. It will also be of interest to policy makers and lecturers and students of social work." (publisher's description)

Understanding Adoption: Clinical Work with Adults, Children, and Parents.
Edited by Kathleen Hushion, Susan B. Sherman, and Diana Siskind.
Understanding Adoption: Clinical Work with Adults, Children, and Parents cover image Lanham, MD: J. Aronson, ©2006.
"Adoption is a transformational process bringing parenthood to those who long for but cannot bear children and giving stranded children home, family, and their place in the world. But every adoption is preceded and followed by its story and when these stories are told in the offices of psychotherapists we begin to understand the impact of adoption in all its complexity. We learn from parents how their quest to have and raise a child has played out in real life, and what shadows might have fallen between the dream and the reality. And we learn from the children the many ways that being adopted shaped their development, their sense of identity; what went wrong along the way and how we may help. Clinical work with parents and children as well as with adults who were adopted is the focus of Understanding Adoption.
Because adoption has become widely practiced, accepted, and accessible, and because is has greatly changed the composition of families, it is a timely subject for study. The authors of this book undertake exploration of this important terrain of loss and connection, and of the fragility and resilience of human bonds." (publisher's description)
