Adoption

To adopt is to “legally take another’s child and bring it up as one’s own” (Oxford Dictionary). Silverstein and Kaplan (1982) listed 7 considerations that every adoption introduces: Loss, Rejection, Guilt and Shame, Grief, Identity, Intimacy, Mastery/control, and that every adoptee and new family deals with inside the new relationship.
