About Adoptee Rage

Statistics Identify large populations of Adoptees in prisons, mental hospitals and committed suicide.
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.

The Chemical Changes In Pregnancy Can Not Be Substuted!

ADOPTEE RAGE!
The Chemical Processes In Natural Mothers Can Not Be Faked!

The chemical metamorphosis of biological changes are instinctive processes in pregnancy, birth and post partum. The changes are essential tools provided by the mother's body beyond the biological support of the pregnancy. These chemical tools are only activated and active during pregnancy, birth and nurturing. The chemicals provide the mother's psychological and physical motivation of parental investment in the child.
The chemical changes effecting the mother's biology are automatic and primal responses to the pregnancy.
The primal urges and knowledge come from the mother's conscious and unconscious connection to her child.
The mother's automatic knowledge of how to create a nurturing environment and her mental and physical behavior is instinctive in regard to the child as the center of focus. The change of attention away from husband or partner, and away from the mothers other children is met with resistance, envy, jealousy and anger by the disregarded family members. This is the natural role of the biological mother's chemical changes in the protection and dedication to her helpless infant, that is a biological extension of herself.

In post birth adoption the infant is given to a substitute mother
that is not biological, physiological or psychologically attached to the infant. The substitute mother is not emotionally dedicated although she may have signed an agreement to nurture the child, she is not motivated biologically. She is motivated by want in her desire to possess the child. The child does not belong to her genetics, which will come into play after the newness wears off in the new mother's reality. The post adoption depression phase of the psychology of adoption.  The adoptive mother does not have an inherent investment in her new child and will not put the child's needs or place above her husband or existing children. Adoption is a second best scenario for an orphan, and a deplorable breech of humanity to separate a mother from her child.

Parental experience, as well as changing hormone levels during pregnancy and postpartum, cause changes in the parental brain.  Displaying maternal sensitivity towards infant cues, processing those cues and being motivated to engage socially with her infant and attend to the infant's needs in any context could be described as mothering behavior and is regulated by many systems in the maternal brain. Research has shown that hormones such as oxytocinprolactinestradiol and progesterone are essential for the onset and the maintenance of maternal behavior in rats, and other mammals as well. Mothering behavior has also been classified within the basic drives (sexual desire, hunger and thirst, fear, power/dominance etc.). Less is known about the paternal brain, but changes in the father's brain occur alongside the mother once the offspring is born.
Maternal hormonal effect
Different hormone levels in the maternal brain and the overall well being of the mother account for 40%–50% of differences in the mother's attachment to her infant.[10] Mothers experience a decrease in estrogen and an increase inoxytocin and prolactin caused by lactationpregnancyparturition and interaction with the infant.
Oxytocin
The levels of oxytocin in the maternal brain correlate with maternal behaviors such as gazing, vocalization, positive affect, affectionate touch and other similar mother-infant relationship behaviors.

Estradiol and progesterone

High mother-infant attachment correlates with a higher ratio of estradiol/progesterone at the end of pregnancy, than at the beginning.[10]

Cortisol

In the first few days after giving birth the levels of cortisol are high which correlates with maternal approach behavior and positive maternal attitudes.[12][13] Mothers with high levels of cortisol were also found to be more vocal towards their children.[12][13] Mothers who experienced adversity in their own childhood, had higher daily patterns of cortisol levels, and were less maternally sensitive.

Glucocorticoids

Glucocorticoids are not essential for displaying maternal behaviors, but in mothers, the levels of glucocorticoids are elevated as to initiate lactation.

Early experiences and shaping

Women who had a positive experience involving their family in their childhood are more likely to be more maternally sensitive and provide that same experience for their own children.[39] Mothers that had negative experiences involving their families undergo neurobiological changes which lead to high stress reactivity and insecure attachment. This causes lower maternal responsiveness to their infant's needs.[40][41]
Rat mothers provide high levels of maternal care (licking and grooming) to their offspring if they themselves received high maternal care as a pup from their own mothers.[42][43] Rat mothers who received low levels of maternal care as pups have lower levels of expression of the glucocorticoid receptor gene and lower synaptic density in the hippocampus. In human mothers, lower hippocampal volume has been associated with a lower ability to regulate emotions and stress, which can be linked with decreased maternal sensitivity as a mother. Mothers with insecure attachments to their own mothers display higher amygdala sensitivity to negative emotional stimuli, like hearing their infant cry. Having more difficulty dealing with stress makes mothers less responsive to their infant's cues.
Larger gray matter and increased activations of the following brain areas occur in mothers who had experienced higher quality maternal care as infants:
