The Adoption Research Discrepancies Are As Common As Pharmaceutical Industry Research Reports To Support
The Industry's Financial Gain
Studies in adoption research from outside the United States

#51. In fact a review of research on transracial adoption
by the Evan B. Donaldson Institute concluded that
adoption across ethnic boundaries does not in itself produce
psychological or behavioral problems in children. However
where a child is adopted across ethnic boundaries, they and
their families can face a range of challenges. The manner
in which the adoptive parent handles these challenges,
particularly their sensitivity and approach to racism facilitates
or hinders childrens development. The authors conclude these
challenges need to be addressed when matching children with
families and preparing families to meet their children's needs.
A recent review of international evidence on matching in
adoptions from care has also shown that adoptions across
ethnic boundaries are at no greater risk for disruptions.
