The language used in adoption.

18 Feb

They say language is important in adoption, it is, but maybe it’s not the words you think are important, that actually matter most of all.

From 2016 – Brought me home..

Read the comments from the post..

Then ask yourself what you say to your adopted children.

Moving on, another one that touches on the same.

From 2017 – Betwixt and Between

Again, read the comments from the post.

Maybe it’s time to make the language focused on the one adopted and what it should be instead. And maybe this time, it should be created by adoptees for adoptees…
