Fifty years of scientific studies on child adoption resulting in psychological harm to the child and
poor outcomes for a child's future.
Medical and psychological attempts to heal the broken bonds of adoption, promote reunions of biological parents and adult children. The other half of attempting to repair a severed Identity is counselling therapy to rebuild the self.

ADOPTEE'S Identity, When Everything You Know Is Wrong

ADOPTEE RAGE!          
              When everything you knew about yourself is wrong.

I am at the point where everything I knew about myself has morphed into a scramble of identity facts. My self Identity is at a standstill. While I sift through the wreckage of who I was, And knowing that who I was, is all a lie.

Searching for answers in psychology, I see many titles of
adoption sites advertising adoptee's identity crisis like a case
of chicken pox, everyone gets it... The Pro-Adoption mentality
discounts the Adoptee's struggle with invalidating get over it.
Dual Identity is not something Adoptee's can easily "get over"
as we have been psychologically damaged by it.

There are numerous strategies and other ways to combat the adopted child's expected realization that they are not who the adopted family says they are. The dual identity can not be avoided, no matter how many studies are conducted. The adoptee will figure it out and surpress the themselves into
the predictable "adoptee silence", pretend they are fine and
in theory move on. Only to manifest in adulthood as a mental
break that will stop all activity until their identity is resolved .
