She does not want me to see the girl or Adopted children are ten times more likely to develop severe emotional disturbances, although they make up less than one per- ceni of the child population. Confronted with this disturbing "statistic." writer Bernard Asbell uncovers the "hidden" dangers behind adoption and the conditions conducive to adoption failure. Dr. Marshall D. Schechter, an eminent California psychiatrist, discovered that of the 120 children he had treated in the last five years, 16 or 13.3 percent had been adopted. A similar discovery was made by the Children's Service of the Menninger Clinic which showed that in a six-year period, adopted children represented 11.3 percent of its child patients. And more recently, a child guidance clinic in Cleveland found that 10 percent of its emotionally distraught children had been adopted. What then are the facts responsible for the wreckage of so many trists, and heads of adoption agencies believe that in most cases it's because of the parents. Some parents are emotionally immature, others transpose their infertile frustrations on the adopted child, and still others aren't sufficiently pre-counseled as to the rearing of an adopted child. Of the 50,000 couples who adopt each year, 20.000 adopt privately. In 48 of the 50 states, pros- I started to say "No"—the automatic response of any parent who wants his children to avoid all the pitfalls he lurched into, miss all the pain and, instead, to make a million dollars. But the fact that it was an application to a college reminded me of something — my own application to a college during the depression days of the '30's. I was able to make appication for program, at Simpson Method- because I had a newspaper job, a full-time job at the munificent pay of $12 a week, and because the men who ran that newspaper had a reverence for education. Some of them were young men who had attended fine Eastern colletes. One was an old university football star.

But it could work out perhaps, if your parents gave their bless- i ing and helpful assistance. Here's a letter from a girl who feels she is neglected by her mother: "Ever since I was a child I have been seeking my mother's love. She never has time for me and when I ask her something important, she forgets to hear me out if the phone rings or some one drops into the house. She'd never think to ask me about it again. Sometimes she says 'I'll sleep on it' or 'I'll think 'about it' but she never mentions it again. "My mother is active in everything in our town. My father 'is 1 on the road a lot. 1 have made the experience. But if your type, her counsel be helpful to your own life. Aren't there girls of your own age who'd make good friends?

Mature love, couched in understanding and emotional stability is of course the antidote. But adoption success is also dependent upon its administrators, namely, piirenls, adoption agencies, doctors, clergymen and a host of other "interested" parties and the September j adoption counseling they receive I and give out.
