Adopter quand on a une descendance biologique

Abstract : The aim of our work is to explore the significance of inter and intra-familial issues that have led to the act of adoption in couples with children of different biological descent. We will try to show how the adoption of a child from another lineage is significant in their filiation, in relation to their respective family romance. The studied population consists of five couples with biological children at the time of the adoption of a child coming from "elsewhere". The international adoption clearly shows a difference with their own biological offspring, since the adopted children are all from an African country and are of a different race. The aim of this research differs from other referenced work, insofar as our interest focuses on the act of adopting by both members of this couple. As discourse analysis is at the heart of our work, it is through the discourse of the couple, during joint interviews and then by each of its members in the context of individual interviews, that we examine the reasons that lead them to wish to be parents of a child of a different ethnicity. The chosen approach is clinical and based on discursive analysis.
