Pamela Slaton- Adoption Reunion Expert May 22
Why do adoptees search ? The number response from the majority of adoptees may surprise you. #1 reason is to thank their Bio Mom for giving them life and for their courageous sacrifice.

In order for an adoptive parent to have this child, something happened. The reason can vary wildly and drastically; from abandonment, abuse, death, negligence, or coersion. Sometimes we as were desperately wanted by our original families. Sometimes we weren't.

Does anyone know about the link between being adopted, depression and suicide? Being given away by your mother is a recipe for killer beliefs, literally killer. I don't use that word lightly. I'd like to know how heal from such beliefs

Twitter's community gives me hope that not all adopted kids will grow up feeling like I did. This community restores my faith and suddenly I find other who understand. I felt so lost until I started interacting with all of you. Now I feel less lost.

I don’t like the word . It normalizes the trauma and exploitation inherent in the system. What would happen if described their history without that word? I think people would be shocked, i.e. I was purchased. How does language keep the cultural mask in place?

Don't ask/say this when meeting : * Ask about their birth family * Comment on their /name * Say "I wish I was " * Who's your REAL mom/dad? * How old were you when they got you? Adoptees, add to this!

community a question for you: what should a good therapist understand about the experience of being adopted if they know nothing about it yet?

Non have their birth certificates. I have a falsified one. My name was not included on my bio father's death certificate. I'm not legally related to my bio family. Adoption is legal child abandonment/abduction. Adoption is a thief. & yes I do ❤ my adoptive FAM

One Day In The Future a charity or social enterprise will be established which funds a) therapeutic support for adult adoptees and b) training for adoptees who want to become therapists to support adoptees. Putting it out there.

I honestly wonder how many adoptive parents really care for the truth, what we've been through, & how adoption has affected us.

The personal stories of , particularly minors, are not for public consumption. They are not pedestals from which to sermonize. parents, it's our obligation to steward this information well.

I’m not going to lie, I’ve built up a wall when it comes to trusting now & pushed some away. It’s sad people only like me because of pets or bracelets. I still trust many adoptees & love my tribe. I’ve been wronged too much now. Therefore, talk on here is less

- how could your adoptive parent have helped in keeping your relationship with birth family? Particularly if visits were affecting behaviour. Or if adopters have experience of this, wld b grateful for ideas. Appropriate for a 6yo.

As we couldn't choose. Now we can choose...where to put our attention, who to be close to, how well we take care of ourselves.

UK who would like a coffee / lunch meet-up? Personally I'm in need of being amongst people who understand. I could find somewhere relaxing and easy to talk in London or happy to travel elsewhere. (I will organising more one-day retreats).

Using "You're adopted" as an insult, a joke, a punchine or a way of othering someone who isn't behaving as you exprct says a lot to the in your life and in your midst, known or not. None of what it says is good.

Every single day I awake and remember and recall. I am my savior. No one else. Nothing else. No one can fill the void. My essence my peace, my very breath comes from within . In our world there is no such thing as an oxygen-mask. We make our own air.
