This book explores what happens in the long term when adopted adults search for - or are searched for by - their birth relatives. Based on research carried out with over 500 adopted people, the book examines the process of searching for identity: being "told" and openess about origins; the adoption experience; feelings of difference and belonging; tracing relatives; being rejected; the reunion experience and beyond. It also examines the particular dynamics of adoptions between people of different racial origins.

Synopsis:

By comparing a group of adopted people who searched for birth relatives, with a group who did not, this is the first study to provide real answers to the fascinating subject of why adopted adults decide to search or not. Based on the experiences of 500 adopted people, the research exhaustively looked at all the possible influences on search decisions.
