Ecological theories stress the need to understand development in
terms of the everyday environment in which children are reared, a need fervently advocated by Bronfenbrenner, who argues that "much of contemporary developmental psychology is the science of the strange behavior of children in strange situations with strange adults for the briefest possible periods of time" (Bronfenbrenner, 1977, p513). I believe that I will find the DSS adoption process to be very intricate and complex.
