Little Strangers

Portrayals of Adoption and Foster Care in America, 1850-1929

eBook - 2003
Rate this:
When Massachusetts passed America's first comprehensive adoption law in 1851, the usual motive for taking in an unrelated child was presumed to be the need for cheap labor. But by 1929 - the first year that every state had an adoption law - the adoptee's main function was seen as emotional. Little Strangers examines the representations of adoption and foster care produced over the intervening years.
