      <br><br>Compared a small group of Korean-American adoptees with
      their adoptive siblings who are biological children of
      the adoptive parents with respect to their
      psychosocial adjustment. Eighteen Korean-American adoptees
      (mean age 5.2 yrs) were compared with 9 biological
      children (mean age 11.3 yrs) by a structured demographic,
      medical, clinical survey form and the Child Behavior
      Checklist-Parent Form (CBCL-P). The parents did not raise any more
      concerns about the adjustment of adopted children than
      their biological children. On the CBCL-P, the 2 groups
      did not differ significantly in competence T-scores,
      total behavioral problems, broad band T-scores and the
      total number of problem behaviors except for lower
      social competence in adopted children and a
      higher<br>internalization score in biological children. In conclusion, the
      international adoptees, the Korean-American Ss have adjusted
      well during their early childhood after early
      adoption. Further studies employing a larger sample are
      warranted to better understand the international adoption
      practice. <br><br>((c) 1999 APA/PsycINFO, all rights
