*Korean adoptees aged 13-18, cultural development, where both the adoptees and adoptive parents were surveyed about: 1) Cultural Socialization/Pluralism: Teaching about the history of Koreans and other minority groups; celebrating Korean culture and holidays; fostering relationships with other Asian or Korean children; 2) Preparation for Bias: Teaching about discrimination, stereotypes, and racism against Koreans and other ethnic groups and races; how child’s life may be affected by discrimination or racism; 3) Promotion for Mistrust: Teaching a child to avoid others who might take advantage of him/her due to race. One interesting point -- parents report more frequently engaging in these than do the surveyed teens!
*International adoptees, aged 8-11, emotional and behavioral development, where both children and parents were surveyed. The report distinguishes between children from orphanages and from foster care, and compares to nonadopted children.
*Social Communications study, started with internationally adopted children at 18 months, 3 years, and 5.5 years. One interesting point -- "overly friendly" children who might go off with a stranger have been thought to be experiencing attachment problems, but the study says that may not be the case.
