Direct Quotes
While adoptive parents and their children may be unprepared for the complexity of problems that may be associated with intercountry adoptions (Welsh, Viana, Petrill, & Mathias, 2007), studies have identified a number of factors that may contribute to successful intercountry adoption outcomes for the children and their adoptive parents.
Strong family attachments and a determination to actively seek communities, organizations, or groups that are similar to or that match the ethnic and cultural history of the adopted child are also important (Chamacho-Gingerich, Branco-Rodriguez, Pitteri, & Javier, 2007; Friedlander et al., 2000; Johnston et al., 2007).
Long Quote
Children adopted from orphanages “typically demonstrate delays in all developmental domains, including gross and fine motor abilities, language, cognition, and social-emotional development” (Welsh et al., 2007, p. 287).

. . .feeling prepared for parenthood may not translate to being prepared for the challenges and tasks associated with raising a child…providing concrete resources and emotional support to overcome the challenges of parenthood can potentially increase satisfaction with the adoption process and, more importantly, reduce the stress that adoptive families may experience due to their child’s special needs (p. 3).
