However, if, for example, MZ twins are more likely to reinforce or imitate each other’s behavior than DZ twins, or parents treat MZ twins more similarly than DZ twins, then there is also a cascade of environmental similarity across sibling types. Given this scenario, it would be difficult to definitively attribute any observed differences in sibling similarity to either G or E because there are two parallel cascades of both genetic and environmental similarity. Reiss’s redefinition, if we understand it correctly, and the design he proposes imply that our analyses no longer need to be predicated on the EEA because we are no longer preoccupied with partitioning variance.

A critical question is whether increasing openness in adoptions invalidates the design. The results of a pilot study involving biological and adoptive parents of 100 adopted offspring were very promising. They showed that it is feasible to directly assess biological parents and to estimate intrauterine exposure to substances of abuse as well as severe maternal stress. Further, longitudinal assessment of offspring and their adoptive parents is quite feasible. Of great importance, variation in openness appears to have no effect on the validity of the design.
