Helping Adults Who Were Adopted as Children  
eprints.usq.edu.au eprints.usq.edu.au
Keynote presented at the Adoption Connections Training Institute: OneWorld Neighborhood 3rd International Conference on Post Adoption Services, February 19-21, 2007, Hotel Marlowe, Cambridge, MA, USA.

Like most other western countries, there was something of a boom period in adoptions in Australia between the 50s and the mid-70s, with those adopted children of course now being adults. Although changes to legislation in the early 90s have made it easier to access adoption records, those adopted in the closed era still continue to teach us about the lifelong nature of adoption. For the last 10 years, my colleagues and I have been conducting research on issues facing these adult adoptees. In this paper, I will focus mainly on two of those studies. The first involved a comparison of 100 adult adoptees and 100 non-adoptees in terms of self-esteem, identity processing styles, and perceptions of the parenting they received from their adoptive parents. The second study involved comparisons of a further group of adoptees and non-adoptees, and included two questionnaire phases and an interview phase. We looked at variables such as attachment, adult relationships, secrecy, depression, emotional arousability, and search and reunion issues. Both studies focused on Anglo-Australian participants because (a) they were the most common adoptions in Australia during that era, and (b) indigenous and international adoptions raise a host of other issues unique to those situations. However, many of the points I cover would also be relevant to other groups of adoptees. In this paper, I’ll be focusing on some of the main findings and the implications of those findings for practitioners. More details about the methodologies can be found in the publications listed at the end of this paper.

Am I the Only Adoptee that Believes in Adoption?
www.adoption.net www.adoption.net

/showurl.php?url=3005 “If you are an adoptee that supports adoption, you should not be a part of this group and should remove yourself.”

This was a rule I read this week in a Facebook group.

Immediately, I had to decide whether or not to react. I could have kept quiet and flown under the radar to remain a part of the group and have their acceptance. However, I decided it was time to react and put a few people in their place. There is no way I would want to be a part of a group that attempts to segregate adoptees based on their beliefs and adoption experience. I decided to ask for clarity on the rule before I voiced my opinion. I specifically asked, “If I believe in adoption does this mean that I have to remove myself from this group?” Once it was confirmed that in fact it meant just that, I had to make the decision whether to stand up for adoptees that support adoption and the thousands of adoptive parents that I consider heroes that do all that they can to be great adoptive parents. Normally I would ignore ignorance; however, I made a vow to myself that it is time to stand up for adoption and adoptive parents, because I know how adoption impacted my life and I am thankful for it.

Impact of Adoption on Adopted Persons  
www.childwelfare.gov www.childwelfare.gov
As discussion of the adoption process becomes more open and accepted in American society, and as more Americans have experience with adoption, there is also more attention focused on those involved in adoption—the adopted person, the birth parents, and the adoptive parents (often referred to as the adoption triad or the adoption constellation). This factsheet examines the impact of adoption on adopted persons who have reached adulthood.
