Cutline says “’unfortunate women and girls’ and their babies” to describe single women who were encouraged to give up infants here. The number of relinquished is not known. I guess 20,000+ (1929-1974, mostly after WWII). One of the biggest maternity hospitals in USA.

What's an "adoption professional"? As we know, there's really only one group of experts on adoption-- who lived that live and experience its outcomes. I presume this must be social worker or employee of a company that promotes adoption as its form of revenue generation.

Another story that-yes-virtually ignores references to California's discriminatory law that denies their to their original birth records. The one reference to the law is so garbled it's useless. Are you entertained?

THREAD: There is a oft-quoted statistic that floats around adoption land that are 4 times more likely to commit suicide. This is a misrepresentation of a study conducted by the Department of Psychology of University of Minnesota in 2013.

Gaslighting happens to who dare speak about the issues they've experienced at the hands of narcissitic abusive parents. Society invalidates the voice of said adoptees who dare challenge the dominant narrative. We need to listen to those who bravely share their accounts!

It’s . Let’s be mindful that our discussions are representing all pieces of adoption stories and validating the experiences of everyone involved.

Can't speak for the whole, but a mild generalization +++ capacity for externalizing thought and thinking critically is arguably unparalleled.
