Abstract

This is a study of adult adoptees in India. Data were gathered via interviews from 48 adult adoptees (81 percent of the eligible participants). The participants ranged in age from 21 to 31 years at the time of the study and were adopted, on an average, at the age of 10.5 months. There were differences between adoptive parent's report of adoption disclosure and adoptee report of adoption disclosure. Overall, most adoptees have thoughts and questions about their birth family. Implications for services for adoptees are presented.
