Free text The author comments on the adoption of older children with references to several studies on this theme. She presents the various stages in the adaptation of the older child to a new family environment with the potential problems that adoptive parents will encounter. She gives recommendations for professionals dealing with adoption which include: careful selection and matching of parents and children, and the importance of preparation for the adoption. Suggestions for the new parents of older children stress the awareness of the difficulties to come, lowering of expectations, the importance of dedicating time to the child, while setting limits, and the necessity for a good dose of patience, humor and faith.
