Adoption has a main objective to give a home to a child in a situation of abandon. To reach this stage, the biological mother has had a long and painful road to travel, an ache that does not finish with the delivery of her child. The child suffers the abandon of his mother and her caretakers before reaching his definitive family. The adoptive parents, frequently have suffered a period of medical tests, procedures and treatments before verifying that they are incapable of having biological children. The adoptive family will live the development stages of the child along with the problems that adoption bears. Paedriatricans and related specialists must help all the participants in order that the adoptive process is harmonic and leads to the well-being and happiness of the child or adolescent

Palabras clave : adoption; birth mother; adoptive child; adoptive parents.
