The Guardian: #Adoption can be Traumatic, our care systems aren’t helping. #ForcedAdoption is CRUEL and CRIMINAL!


Adoption IS a trauma. And certainly for all those parents who are expected to say a ‘final good bye’ and who do NOT agree to their children even being in ‘care’, let alone being adopted against their will! Shouldn’t we begin to call it LEGITIMISING child STEALING?

Anybody respecting the fact that a baby was part of a woman’s body should realise that separating that bond is bound to be traumatic, even if the mother has not been ‘good’.

To suggest that adoption ‘can’ be traumatic ignores the fact that children can only relate to people as people, whether they are parents, foster carers or adopters. And what counts is the familiarity.

But I guess we must be glad that ‘the system’ seems to be ‘caving in’, if we read this article.
