Free text In the series Mutations - No 96; articles by various authors on the subject of abandonment and adoption, among which: two articles by Claudia Fonseca, professor of anthropology at the Federal University of Rio Grande do sul, Porto Alegre, Brazil, 1- Menores carentes - on the situation of street children in Brazil who live on the street but often in contact with their families in situations of poverty or "in circulation" between families, and where couples are seldom stable. In Le cadre brésilien: un enjeu interculturel, the author deals with the various forms of internal or domestic adoptions and with intercountry adoptions, as well as situations leading to illegal procedures in adoptions. Two articles by Camille Lacoste-Dujardin: in Au Maghreb, l'enfance innommable, comments on the law of "Chariah" which does not accept adoption and which condemns illegitimate children who will never have a place in society; in De vos enfants adoptifs, Allah n'a point fait vos fils she comments on the Tunisian experience in substitute family care. Interview of Michel Soulé, psychiatrist, director of the COPES: Penser l'adoption. In La maternité adoptive, Catherine Bonnet comments on how the concept of motherhood has to be redefined to include parenthood achieved by adoption or medically assisted means.
