A child’s early experiences with adults becomes the “blueprint” for all subsequent relationships. Unfortunately, not all youngsters receive the love and attention they need. Their pre-natal, infancy and/or toddler experiences include orphanage residence, abandonment, abuse, neglect, multiple moves, in-utero substance exposure, etc. Their “blueprint” is that of “I must take care of myself. Adults cannot be trusted to meet my needs! I am unlovable. Everyone leaves me or hurts me."
Frequently, children — fearful of forming loving attachments — find their way into adoptive families.
Pre-adoptive expectations are shattered by the day-to-day struggle to form connections to the adoptee that arrived with a history of trauma!
Professional intervention is often needed to help Moms, Dads, brothers, sisters and the adoptee form the close ties that all families desire.
