We have presented these characteristics of 22 adopted children and 20 sets of adoptive parents viewed as special by a team of child psychiatrists and a psychiatric social worker in a private setting. Material derived from psychological test protocols was included in the study. No attempt has been made to statistically validate the findings and the presentation has been descriptive. The reality of an abandonment experience would appear to be a major element in the anxiety experienced by the adopted child. This source of anxiety is the one element that distinguishes the emotionally disturbed adopted child from the emotionally disturbed nonadopted child.
