I’m not a fan of numerical lists of sound bite messages about complicated subjects like adoption. It doesn’t educate anyone, it just provides fodder for stereotypes and misunderstandings. The article below has two sound bite messages about the adoptee experience, written by a non-adopted person. Why down play that every adoptee has to process added challenges at one or many points in their life, simply, because they are adopted? Why write something so simplistic and dismissive. The writer is correct that every adoptee is unique, I’ll give her credit for that. I still think she is also wrong, and potentially hurting adoptees growing up now, and in the future because some adoptive parents will listen to her instead of the experts.
