SPECK, Sheila; QUEIROZ, Edilene Freire de  and  MARTIN-MATTERA, Patrick. Challenges of the adoption clinic: return of children. Estud. psicanal. [online]. 2018, n.49, pp.181-186. ISSN 0100-3437.

With this article, we aim to reflect on some aspects of the subjectivity of adoptive parents involved in the experience of returning children during the stage of coexistence - a stage that precedes the legal decision of a judge - Such aspects could act as impeding factors or that may hinder the construction of new parenting ties. In order to discuss this issue, we will take as a basis the report of an adoptive couple who returned a five-year-old child, who had been with them for only 15 days. In this way, this work engenders and questions problems concerning the difficulty of assuming the parenting role that potential adopters may face and which prevents the engagement of the adoptive child in a new history.

Keywords : Return in adoption; Filiation process; Psychoanalysis.
