Free text Number 38 in the series: Developmental Clinical Psychology and Psychiatry. The authors contribute to the study of adjustment of children and their families to adoption which they conclude "has become a very complex and highly varied form of family life". They describe the adoptive family ' life-cycle ', as children go through the different developmental stages. They examine some of the factors that can influence adoption outcomes, among which are: genetic factors, pre-placement history, age differences at placement, personality traits, adoptive family structure and dynamics. The book includes chapters on special needs adoption, transracial and intercountry adoption and open adoption
