Free text The author, Clinical Psychologist at the Wihelmina Children's Hospitalin Utrecht, Netherlands, points out the need to be aware of the many possible physical and emotional handicaps that an international adoptee can present - identity problems faced by adoptees of different race from the adoptive parents; physical defects and diseases that may be present. The author stresses the importance of preparation and support for the adoptive parents, and points out the relative ignorance of most parents to normal vs abnormal behaviour in their children.
