Free text The author gives an overall assessment of the issue of transracial adoptions, either domestic or intercountry. Studies on the matter seem to show (though not conclusively) that, on the whole, transracially adopted children are generally well adjusted, though, in the author's opinion, the reality is that this kind of adoption adds complexity (though not pathology) to the adoptive family.
