Examining the cases of adoptive families - indicated by the Juvenile Court and followed by Mother and Baby Clinics in Campania - it can be seen that problems get more serious in adolescence. Our hypothesis is that this happens mainly when the adoption is lived as a rigid model that stops, in turn, other processes denying the fact it is a dynamic process. This block of the adolescence process (for example the reading of the normal signs of separation as an adoption failure) reveals the main problems in the family and in the other systems involved.
