DANTAS, Fabiana de Souza e Silva  e  FERREIRA, Sandra Patrícia Ataíde. Late adoption: production of senses on fatherhood and affiliation in a homosexual family. Temas psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.23, n.3, pp. 593-606. ISSN 1413-389X.

This study aimed to investigate the production of senses between parents and adopted children about fatherhood and affiliation. A homosexual family composed of two fathers and two children who were late adopted at the ages of 6 and 7 years, took part in the study. Interviews were recorded and the analysis was based on the search of the meaning cores proposed by Aguiar and Ozella (2006). The results indicate that the meaning to be a father is related with the self-renunciation in favor of the child's interests, and the commitment to speak the truth to the children. It also means assuming the role and position of a father in the household, but whenever necessary, they assume the mother's place. These roles are perceived as complementary and important in the keeping of the child's physical and emotional development. The affiliation sense produced by the adopted child for this homosexual couple is one of being chosen and loved.
