Problem Statement: Attachment theory is the framework of understanding the child's adoption. Purpose of Study: This study is focused on the supportive factors for successful adoption. Research Methods: Clinical interviews with children (Friend and Family's Interview - FFI) and parents (Parent development Interview- PDI). Findings: Half of the 40 adopted children assessed have a secure attachment. Conclusions: When parents are aware about their role in promoting the child attachment, children develop secure attachment (B). This conclusion has a good potential for practical application in the training offered by child protection structures to the parents who are candidates for adoption.
