The Adoptive Family Within the Romanian Cultural Context: An Exploratory Study-Groza, Victor; Muntean, A.; Ungureanu, R.
After 2001, the Romanian government banned international adoption ostensibly to improve domestic child welfare services. Until then, national adoption programs were not well developed. In an effort to improve the Romanian knowledge base on domestic adoption, a series of studies of domestic adoption have been conducted. Using a mixed-methods strategy, this article presents results from one study of 39 domestic Romanian adoptions. Results highlight characteristics of intact adoptions from a Romanian cultural perspective.
