Samenvatting

Rooted in Adoption: A Collection of Adoptee Reflections is a compilation of experiences from those who have been adopted. The authors asked adoptees of various ages, backgrounds, and experiences to share their personal adoption stories. Adoptees are the true leading experts on adoption. They discuss the joys of adoption and the challenges associated with living a lifetime of unanswered questions, leading to their past and identity. Jules Alvarado, internationally renowned public speaker, author, and Licensed Professional Counselor, shares her insight on adoption related trauma. Many people know at least one person that has been touched by adoption. This may be a co-worker, classmate, or someone in your own family. Adoption is far more complex than a lot of people can comprehend. For years, adoptees have been denied access to medical records, birth records, and their original birth certificates. Many adoptees receive little to no information pertaining their families of origin. This can often result in low self-esteem, feelings of abandonment, and confusion. While some adoptees will reunite with their birth families, it can be quite costly, time consuming, and emotional. As you read these stories, you might feel inspired and hopeful. You might even feel sad, frustrated, or angry. Ask yourself, ''What can I learn from these stories?'' While some of these stories are difficult to read, it is necessary that you not only hear them but also learn from them. Only then can we change the laws that, for decades, have denied us one simple right … the right to know who we are and, in turn, begin the healing that all adoptees deserve. This is a great resource for educators, mental health professional, adoptive parents, or those looking to adopt.
