The Ugly Duckling and parental imaginary. This article proposes to discuss the issue of adoption based on a clinical case observed in a Brief Dynamic Psychotherapy at Centro Integrado de Psicologia - Feevale. In this case, the authors aimed to understand the place that the adopted child is requested to occupy in the family. The study highlights several possible answers to the question, concerning adoption as a construction of a parental imaginary and the possible implications for the child when the adoption is not revealed.

Keywords : Adoption; secret; imaginary; psychoanalysis; brief psychotherapy.
