Description:
The study consisted of three stages. In stage one, research on intercountry adoption outcomes, policies and practices was reviewed. A computerised database on all intercountry adoptions in Ireland was compiled. In stage two, measures were selected and interview schedules constructed. A random sample of 180 children aged one to 18 was drawn from the total population. In stage three, the main data collection took place, entailing visits to 170 households in order to assess and interview the children and their parents; distribution of questionnaires to 70 teachers; focus groups with service providers; meetings with support groups and interviews with 19 internationally adopted young adults. The main report presents an extensive description of the resulting data. This Summary Report outlines the aims of the study and the approach taken to collecting the data. It then presents a discussion of the main findings. For a detailed account of the study the reader is advised to consult the main report.
