Breaking news…

Adoption is not a trauma – it’s a blessing…preceded by the comment from him that people from bio families have issues too. 

thanks scott simon…because you must be the expert after all – you wrote a book.

by the way just because we are adopted doesn’t mean we did not come from a bio family…which makes your comment about ‘bio families having problems too’ mean what?  that we are aliens? or just ungrateful because we see both the good and bad?  just what were we supposed to have gleaned from that tidbit?  shut up and be grateful?  don’t rock the boat?  don’t try to make adoption only happen as a last resort?  just what was that bio comment for?

by the way they did have other voices which was good and very balanced and if you really want to listen to scott he is the last 15 minutes and that part totally manages to negate all of the first 45 minutes of real conversation because it is so….

    Oh, my, I hope the children he adopted are “good” little adoptees, else he’s going to lern a few things the hard way. Being a non adopted person, he of course “knows” what being an adoptee is like and how we all should feel, because he is an expert in what exactly?

    Oh, and my most favorite thing APs like to say about adoption: It’s a miracle. Hmmm, how do ya figure, cause I can explain evry aspect of just how, why, when, and what, causes adoption to become a circumstance in someone’s life. What’s so miraculous about it?

    I guess, books talkingabout trama, and grief, just don’t pay the bills as well as, the happy-ever-after adoption stories? Oh yes, and “getting over it” is so freaking easy to do…after all bio families have problems too, well, “DUH”. Doesn’t he realize that what he is saying is that if his children have issues, it will be because, uh, he wasn’t a “good enough” parent. .Guess not, or he probably wouldn’t have said such an uninformed thing. lol Why is it APs with young children who love to tell us how adoption is nothing to us? Maybe we should listen, because, obviously, they have soooo much experience, they would know? Give me a break!

    I’ll stop now, but what a joke.

    Definitely a joke. I don’t mind the happy stories – I have them – but don’t deny the reality for the adoptee or that adoption only a bandaid not a solution to a bigger problem…pretty sure his kids will know better than to tell him if they have any feelings contrary to his views…just makes me mad.

    The npr was horrific if it is the same one I listened too before – will go check it out.

    In the interview, he mentioned how “inconsolable” one of his doughters had been when they picked her up. Uhm, “HELLO!” If that’s not trauma, what does he think trama is? He’s completely clueless.

    He’s just one of those who sadly won’t get it until it is far to late…sad for his kids.
