Social Exclusion of Adoptees and Adopted Children
Social exclusion also referred to as marginalization, is a concept used in many parts of the world to characterize contemporary forms of social disadvantage and relegation to the fringe of society. It is a term used widely in the United Stated and European Countries. First utilized in France.  It is used across disciplines including education, sociology, psychology, politics and economics.
Social exclusion refers to processes in which adopted children and adult individuals or entire communities of adopted people are systematically blocked from rights, opportunities and resources (e.g. birth certificates, housing, employment, healthcare, civic engagement, democratic participation and due process) that are normally available to members of society and which are key to social integration.
The resulting alienation or disenfranchisement is connected to a person's birth status, effecting social class educational opportunities, educational status, relationships in childhood and future living standards. It also applies to people  with a disability, groups of minorities, to members of LGBT community, to the elderly, and to youth and adopted children. Anyone who deviates in any perceived way from the norm of a population may become subject to coarse or subtle forms of social exclusion.
The outcome of adoption related and other forms of social exclusion is that affected individuals or communities are prevented from participating fully in the economic, social, and political life of the society in which labeled substandard        at birth.  
Material deprivation is the most common result of this exclusion. Ensuing poverty, emotional and psychological trauma, and its resulting psychological trauma, illness and disease may result in catastrophic damage to lives, health, and adopted child psyche.
