Only in Adoption | For Adoptees Only
Do you believe that adopted people should have the right to search for their biological families if they so wish? Would information on your biological family's existence have prompted you to wonder about them or look for them as an adult? Should the adoption contract continue to solely be between the adoption facilitator and the applicants (adoptive parents)? Or should you be given the opportunity to be informed and also sign the adoption contract based on your interest in the matter? Do you believe it is ethical for missionaries to advertise children overseas as "orphans" even though the children come from families? Questions like these are asked in this "Only in Adoption" Survey for adoptees only.
This questionnaire, created by and for adoptees, asks about adoption agency activities, the behavior of adoptive parents, and your beliefs and feelings about adoption based on your experiences. Whereas domestic and international adoptions have traditionally been pioneered by evangelicals and missionaries who claimed that the movement of children is "God's Plan", the great majority (95.5%) of all adult adoptees surveyed in 2019 who had been adopted between the years 1942 and 2003 believe that adoption was coordinated by humans. What do you think?
