Survey to Guide Adoption Research
You are invited to help guide our research by telling us what topics matter to you regarding your experience of international adoption. Participants can be individuals who were internationally adopted and 18 years or older OR parents who have adopted internationally.
This survey is collecting responses over a one year period and is conducted by Megan Gunnar Ph.D. of the Institute of Child Development and Richard Lee, Ph.D. of the Department of Psychology, both at the University of Minnesota and the International Adoption Project.
The goal of the survey is to find out what is important and what kind of topics are of interest to individuals and their families who have experienced international adoption. This survey is intended to help us develop an extensive survey that covers issues of interest.
If you agree to participate in this survey, we would ask you to complete a 15 minute online survey that asks about your areas of interest and current demographic information. At the end of the survey, you will have an opportunity to join the International Adoption Project (IAP) Adult Registry. Your email will be asked during the consent and will be used only for the purpose of notifying you if you are the winner of the gift card drawing.
