Failure-To-Thrive Force-Fed Adopted Infants
The abandoned newborn is traumatized by mother's absence.
The traumatized newborn left alone without his familiar whole-SELF
(biological mother) becomes filled with sorrow over the mother's absence.
When the biological mother does not return the newborn looses all hope, becomes depressed and refuses food.The loss of hope is a psychological
death in infants, but laws and the adoption industry prevent the infant's
physical death by force-feeding the infant.
The traumatized, maternal-deprived, depressed and "lost-hope infant" is involuntarily kept alive by (NG-Tube) force-feeding to be harvested by the adoption industry. The adoption industry can't erase the hopeless child's TRUTH, memory of their mother, their experiences of psychological distress and trauma that will outlast the duration of the adopted
childhood and be with them throughout their life.
FAILURE TO THRIVE
- Endogenous (or "organic")
- Causes are due to physical or mental issues with the child itself. It can include various inborn errors of metabolism. Problems with the gastrointestinal system such as gas or acid re-flux are painful conditions which may make the child unwilling to take in sufficient nutrition. Cystic fibrosis, diarrhea, liver disease, anemia or iron deficiency. Celiac disease or food allergies make it more difficult for the body to absorb nutrition. Other causes include physical deformities, infections and metabolism problems.
- Exogenous (or "nonorganic")
- Caused by caregiver's actions. Examples include Maternal Depravity, Postpartum depression, post-adoption depression, lactation problems or psychological problems of the mother.
- A recent study on toddlers with exogenous FTT has found preliminary evidence suggesting that difficulty experienced during feeding times with this condition may in fact be impacted by preexisting sensory processing problems. Such difficulties with sensory processing are more commonly observed in toddlers who have a history of growth deficiency and feeding problems. The child's previous experience being force fed through NG-Tubes or GI-Tubes creates a serious psychological impact on the child's current experience of feeding.
- Both endogenous and exogenous factors may co-exist. The child with severe acid reflux who appears to be in pain while eating may make a caregiver hesitant to offer sufficient feedings.
