Whenever there is a post, or article, that speaks to anything other than being a “positive adoption story” many in adoption community get upset. It seems as if the mindset or requirement is that:
ADOPTION IS ALWAYS BEAUTIFUL AND DON’T YOU DARE SAY OTHERWISE!
When people in the adoption community only talk about the positive, the beautiful, then they fail the child most of all. Not all the children failed by that mindset suffer the extreme fate of Hana, who Maureen at “Light of Day Stories” speaks of in her post below, I talked about a different casehere, and abuse and not talking about it here, but we all fail the children adopted when we choose not listen to, or talk about, both the good and the bad in adoption.
Children adopted deserve better, it’s that simple.
Please go over and read Maureen’s post with an open mind to the realities of what happens when everyone fails the child, comment on the post and ask her questions, because her knowledge is greater than ours. Then go start the conversation in your own group, and send them to read Maureen’s post – it’s the right thing to do.
