Abstract: Using data from the general public and social workers' attitudes towards adoption, the study examined adoption disclosure to the child, as well as perceptions towards social disclosure. The results indicated that the majority of Singaporeans believe that the adoptee should be made aware of their adoption status; however there is a widespread negative attitude towards disclosure to community. Age, marital status, ethnicity and familiarity with child adoption were significantly related to adoption disclosure. Social workers also shared similar perceptions towards social nondisclosure. These findings highlight the need for educational programs to sensitize the public to adoption of children in Singapore. © 2012 Department of Social Work, National University of Singapore, Singapore.
