The video talks about some of the things an adoptive mother wishes she had known before completing the adoption process. It gives useful information to people who are thinking about obtaining adoption services.
One of the things people should be aware of is that they may have to deal with a great deal of trauma inflicted on an adopted child.
That trauma can be very challenging when it comes to helping the child heal. The adoptive parent may need to seek counseling, therapy, and other resources for that child.
Another point of concern is that a major loss is at the root of every adoption, and adoptive children need extra love and care because of it. Some children have been uprooted from their families, homes, and countries, and they may need extra help adjusting to the changes.
Another circumstance parents should be aware of is that many people will have questions that may appear to question the legitimacy of the new family. For example, someone might ask the female whether she is the mother of the adopted child because he or she doesn’t look like her. Adoptive parents will have to have the strength and resilience to either answer the questions politely or decline to answer them because they are personal.
