This background will also give the general mental health practitioner recognition of the circumstances in which a referral to an adoption specialist is essential. HISTORY OF ADOPTION Many ﬁne sources provide a history of adoption, both within the United States (Esposito & Biafora, 2007) and beyond (Askeland, 2006); in fact, entire texts (Carp, 2002; Herman, 2008) are devoted to this topic. This chapter looks at the historical aspects of adoption from the vantage of the adoptive parent. We believe that those mental health professionals who treat adoptive parents should know something about the history of adoption.
That is, adoptive parents frequently embark on adoption following a long and unsuccessful effort to have a biological child. The road to consummating an adoption can be perilous. Long waits, reversals of decisions by birth parents, and political upheavals in countries in which adoption applications are made are just a few examples of potential frustrations. Many adoptive children entering the adoptive family have a range of physical and psychological problems that become evident over time and affect the child’s adjustment at different developmental stages.
Studies to date are limited by small samples, lack of racial/cultural diversity among parents, and a focus on the mother only (McKay, Ross, & Goldberg, 2010). Also, the type of adoption has a bearing on parental characteristics. The subgroups outlined at the beginning of this chapter (foster, intercountry, private domestic) vary in terms of education and income. For example, those who adopt from foster care tend to have lower incomes than parents adopting privately, whether that adoption is domestic or international.
