PALAVECINO, Carolina; RODRIGUEZ, Pablo  e  ZICAVO, Nelson. LIFE EXPERIENCES OF PEOPLE WHO DECIDED FOR ADOPTIVE PARENTHOOD. Cienc. Psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.9, n.2, pp.259-271. ISSN 1688-4094.

This research discusses the experiences of a group of people who decided for adoptive parenthood, after failing to conceive a child biologically. Hence they decided to start the adoption process in Chile. This work becomes relevant as it deals with a study field in which greater depth of analysis and expertise are required: identifying the needs of adoptive parents, expectations, feelings, and assessment of what is lived during the process of adoption. It was addressed from the phenomenological paradigm since it allows knowing the experiences of people through the phenomena that arise in the interaction between researcher/researched (Lyotard, 1960). Thus when interviewing people who successfully completed their adoption process, it was concluded that parents in the early phase of the process had positive feelings associated with the possibility of having a child. Nevertheless, as they moved through the different stages of this process, negative emotions arose due to the extensive delay of the procedure, recognizing anger, frustration, sadness, as the most recurrent emotions. Finally, once the child was received by his new family the feelings that emerged were associated with love, joy and commitment, generated by the fulfillment of the desired parenthood
