Behavior problems and mental health referrals of international adoptees: a meta-analysis.

International adoption involves more than 40,000 children a year moving among more than 100 countries. Before adoption, internationaladoptees often experience insufficient medical care, malnutrition, maternal separation, and neglect and abuse in orphanages. Most international adoptees are well-adjusted although they are referred to mental health services more often than nonadopted controls. However, international adoptees present fewer behavior problems and are less often referred to mental health services than domesticadoptees.
