Book Summary :

The framework that surrounds adoption laws, policies and practicees, the beliefs, myths and attitudes that endow it with enhanced and profound meaning, value, and mystery are what author Joanne Wolf Small, M.S.W. calls the adoption mystique. Its power is evident in the dispsaraging attitudes about adoption and adoptees held by millions of people. Important issues remain buried, and most of the affected have kept silent. It is no wonder that we know so little about adoption and its aftermath. The Adoption Mystique outlines the history and background of American adoption culture from a psychosocial or environmental perspective. It looks at adoption through a series of essays that explore the hidden but powerful religious, social and economic factors that affect society's image of adoption past and present.The undercurrent of negative feelings and treatment accorded adoptive families--and adoptive status in particular--remain much the same despite recent reforms. The book not only examines the problem, but leads to an effective solution.
