PASSOS, Danielly; CAVALLARI, Marcela  and  GOMES, Isabel Cristina. The process of foreign and interracial adoption: an analysis of linking formation. Pensando fam. [online]. 2018, vol.22, n.1, pp. 118-130. ISSN 1679-494X.

This article aims discusses the linkage issues arising from interracial foreign adoption process a throughout theoretical study, based on news from the Brazilian media regarding the adoption under said modality by a couple of actors. The interracial adoption still needs further investigation to demystify prejudices and overcome barriers among different ethnicities, as well as to provide a place of recognition for the multiracial family. Linkage psychoanalysis has shown a significant value, especially because it allows a new understanding of the inter-psychic processes that take place between the individual and the family, as well as the formation of links between them. In conclusion, in this illustrative case, there is a possibility of remolding the family bonds, despite the ethnic-cultural differences, once it is given to the adoptive child a place in the desire of the parents. Thus, the belonging is built on affective primacy and respecting the altherity.
