A-dop-tion Mys-tique: n. Cultural framework surrounding adoption policy, law and practice; the beliefs, myths and attitudes that enhance it with meaning, value, and mystery.

THE ADOPTION MYSTIQUEexposes, documents and confronts the effects of negative social stigma on adoption institutions, practices, adopted persons, adoptive and birthparents. It is a timely counterpoint to the misinformation and prejudices that created and maintain the myths of adoption. Secrecy and shame lie at the heart of U. S. child adoptions and have led our society to:

*Failed childwelfare policies
*Prejudices against adoptees, birthmothers, adoptive parents,and infertility
*Discrimination and loss of rights for adoptees
*Anti-adoptee media bias
*Problems with telling a child he or she is adopted
*Dysfunctional adoption myths


It is time for adoption reform to bring U. S. child adoptions into the 21st century. This book leads the way.
