Adoption Mythology

January 10th, 2015 | by

If you are adopted or part of an adopted family then you’ve probably heard a question like this before: “So, what’s the big deal about being adopted?” or perhaps one like this: “Why aren’t adopted people satisfied with what they have, they should be grateful?” I’ve heard such questions or some variation thereof so many times that I have to wonder what compels people to ask such questions - which are surprisingly personal - yet which express surprisingly common views. I conclude that these kinds of questions are born of a misunderstanding about the nature of adoption, what I call ‘Adoption Mythology’.

    Ginny Paulsen shared Upworthy's video to the group: We Are Adopted. ...

    For some adoptees, their own adoption can be a complicated topic. Luckily, this woman discovered the supportive community that surrounded her. Testimony is an Upworthy documentary series capturing the unique stories of people everywhere. The opinions and perspectives shared are their own.

    WE ARE ADOPTED presents: A series self-discovery workshops

    A HERO’S JOURNEY Led by Erin Melvin RYT and Catherine Moore MA RCC

    If you were adopted you grew up with a story. Something you may have been told or a story you made up. Is that story
    still true for you?

    This workshop is an opportunity to examine your stories from a different perspective with you as the hero.

    Through movement, discussion and reflective writing you will leave with a more authentic version of your story.
