General adoption wisdom is that it is best not to adopt out of birth order or to create artificial twins through adoption. What are the realities of these decisions? Is it always a bad idea? Our guests will be Dr. Anne Brodzinsky, psychologist and co-author of Children's Adjustment to Adoption, and Dr. Martha Henry, Director of the Office for Foster Care and Adoption at the University of Massachusetts Medical School and co-author of Adoption in the United States: A Reference for Families, Professionals, and Students.
