COUTO, Olímpia Helena Costa. The crossroad of adoption: from the precocious abandonment to the last hope. Reverso [online]. 2014, vol.36, n.68, pp. 63-69. ISSN 0102-7395.

This work focuses in the experience of late foreign adoption of Brazilian children by French families. The child enlisted in the National Adoption Registration is a subject-object in a public shelter, waiting for the miracle of being desired by some family. Casting an eye on the child, under the light of psychoanalysis, this work proposes some considerations on the complex theme of the infant victim of precocious abandonment and his/her path until the last hope that is the late foreign adoption.
