The review makes an attempt to find reasons for the refusal of foster children in foster care. We analyzed the works aimed at foreign adoptions from Russia, as well as recent papers exploring the stress system in infants. It is concluded that the impairment of stress systems in children in the first half year of life as a result of early adversity leads to inadequate responses to intense stimuli in puberty. This is the main reason for the refusal of parents to children. We also consider the fundamentals of stress, based on recent neurobiological data.
