Abstract [en]

This essay is about adoptive parents and adoptive children. The purpose of the essay is to study how the feeling of inclusion and exclusion affects the adoptive parents and the adoptive children’s identity process in relation to the adoption discourse and the adoption community. My empirical material consists of interviews with thirteen informants: seven adoptive parents and six adoptive children. Their stories testify that they feel like they’re part of something which in the public eye is perceived as an abnormal family constellation. My results show that their experiences have had a vastly big impact on their lives, how they present themselves as individuals and how they view their belonging to the Swedish society.
