Abstract: This qualitative study examined the experiences of the adoptive parents and adoptive adolescents in the process of adoption. It also focused on the integration of these adolescents within the major institutions of society. These include integration within the family, tho education or place of work, interactions with friends, and in society in general. There are various studies which speak about the development and integration of these adopted Romanian adoptees mid which suggest that adopted children from Romania bring with them a lot of development problems which hinder them from forming healthy attachments with their families and society in general. In the current study ten interviews were conducted, five with adoptive parents and five with their adopted adolescents separately.
