    Adult Adoptee Study and Desire to Start Family - Help?


    My name is Katie Green and I am student at Smith College School for Social Work. This study is in partial completion of my master’s in social work (MSW). I am conducting a study that seeks to answer the question, “does the experience of being adopted affect an adoptee’s decision to start a family?”

    I’m looking to interview adult adoptees who are either contemplating parenthood or who are already parents about their personal adoption narratives in order to observe if their experiences are related to their considerations of starting a family.

    Interviews will last approximately 60 minutes. Participation criteria includes: 1) Adopted as an infant (age 0-1), 2) Be 18 or older and 3) Thinking about starting a family (or not!) or be a parent already.

    If this sounds like you and you’re interested ” great! Please touch base with me here or via email: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

    Or, if you know of someone who fits the bill, pretty please share this posting. I can conduct interviews in-person, via telephone or online, so location is not an issue!

    Katie Green, Graduate Student

    This study protocol has been reviewed and approved by the Smith College School for Social Work Human Subjects Review Committee (HSRC).
