The International Adoption Center at Inova Fairfax Hospital for Children is currently conducting a research project to study parenting stress
following international adoption. Very few studies have sought to understand whether internationally adopted parents are experiencing stress both during and
after the adoption of their children. In addition, few studies have been done to compare the stress experienced by adoptive fathers and how this may compare to the
stress seen in adoptive mothers. In this anonymous on-line study husband and wife couples will separately answer basic demographic and stress questions online.
The answers will be coded and no identifying information is used when recording responses. You can find out more information about this study by
