My name is Colleen Colaner and I am a doctoral candidate in the Department of Communication Studies at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I am doing research on how adoptive parents talked to their children about adoption, and I’m looking for people who would be interested in filling out a survey for me.
I have a new study underway, and I am looking for some individuals who would be willing to fill out another online survey for me. If you are interested in filling out another survey for me, I would be very appreciative.
Let me give you a little information about the study. According to the National Survey of Children’s Health, there are about 1.8 million adoptees in the United States. Even though adoption is a relatively common thing, there is still a lot that is unknown about adoptive families. In my research, I am trying to find out how adoptive parents have talked to their children about their adoption, and how these conversations may relate to the way that individuals think about their adoption.
To do this, I am asking individuals who were adopted to think back on their upbringing and answer some questions about their parents’ communication. Your experience, represented in your answers in this survey, will help researchers and people in everyday life to have a more realistic understanding of adoption and will shed light on the role that adoptive parents play in their children’s upbringing. In other words, I really want to hear from you because I think that we need better information about adoptive families!
Many of the questions may seem familiar, and some of the questions are exactly the same as in previous studies you may have completed. This is intentional – I’m sorry for the redundancy, but feel free to use the same answers as before. This survey is an extension of my previous studies, and I need to get new responses.
