Free text The author analyses the search for identity in the adopted child as he reaches adolescence. She presents the normal aspects of an adolescent's preocupations as he reaches this stage in his life and links them with the special status of the adopted adolescent, as he tries to connect with his historical and biological past (which is often unknown to him) to construct his personal identity. The section on reunion of adoptees and biological parents refers to studies conducted in the USA and the UK suggesting a majority of positive experiences leading to the resolution of long-felt conflicts associated with the lack of information about their past.
