Synopsis

Openness in Adoption Exploring Family Connections by Harold D. Grotevant, Ruth G. McRoy

Harold Grotevant and Ruth McRoy provide a thorough review of the issues involved in openness in adoption and a clear description of the methods and results of the landmark research project they led. They provide rich data from an exceptional sample of adoptees, their adoptive parents and their birth mothers, and provide a perspective of their experiences as `triangular families' which openness generates. The last chapter reaches some general conclusions and discusses implications for future adoption practice.

Reviews

Grotevant and McRoy's Openness in Adoption is an excellent example of a well-designed, focused, thoughtful piece of research carried out in a field that is complex and controversial. -- David Howe * Child and Family Social Work *
