Being adopted - H÷fundar: David M. Brodzinsky, Ph.D., Marshall D. Scechter, M.D., og Robin Marantz Henig

LikeáPassages, thisáágroundbreaking book uses the poignant, powerful voices ofááadoptees and adoptive parents to explore theááexperience of adoption and its lifelong effects. A majorááwork, filled with astute analysis and movingáátruths.á

Recent studies have shown that being adopted can affect many aspects of adoptees' lives, from relationships with adoptive parents to bonds with their own children. Using their combined total of 55 years experience in clinical and research work with adoptees and their families, the authors use the voices of adoptees themselves to trace how adoption is experienced over a lifetime.
