Adoptee Parents Needed for Study

Adoptee parents,

Please consider participating in this important study.

I was contacted by this student, but cannot participate due to time constraints. But she asked me to post this here.

I am student at Smith College School for Social Work and am conducting a study in partial completion of my master’s in social work (MSW). I am writing with hopes you might be interested in participating in my study, which 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 between 60 and 90 minutes. Participation criteria includes: 1) You were adopted as an infant (age 0-1), 2) You are are 18 or older and 3) You are thinking of starting a family or are a parent already.

If you might be interested – that’s great – thank you! Please touch base with me via email or phone and we can talk about the next steps. My email address is and my telephone number is (484) 800-1569.

Or, if you personally aren’t interested but you know of someone who fits the bill, pretty please share this message.

Katie Green, Graduate Student
