dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this heuristic grounded theory study was to discover how community-based family music groups could foster bonding development in adoptive families. The subjects were 11 adoptive families with a total of 41 family members. Every adoptive family included at least one parent and at least one adopted child under three and one-half years old: siblings also participated. Data sources included three parental interviews, eight-weeks of parental journaling, and an eight-week Kindermusik® Wiggle & Grow family music class. Through the analysis of data three themes were identified: (a) healing awareness, (b) acceptance awareness, and (c) compassion awareness. These three themes then informed the development of a conceptual summary of community-based family groups to promote parent-child secure attachment bonds.eng
