Adopted Children Are Doing Just Fine
I had to link to this post by Dawn on creatingafamily.org which discusses this meta-study of adopted children. The study compared the self-esteem levels of nearly 11,000 adoptees with those of 33,000 non-adopted people and found no difference between the two. Since self-esteem is a huge predictor of healthy personality development and achievement, this is a very reassuring thing to read.
