The Maternal Drive is a hormonal chemical state arising in pregnancy, childbirth and postnatal, that provides the mother
the enhanced intuitive abilities to care for her newborn child.
The maternal drive is non existent in the adoptive mother, who
does not possess the pregnancy promoted biological state to care for the biologically damaged child removed from the birth mother's body. The extensive factual knowledge, research and awareness on the pregnancy's hormonal driven postnatal ability to nurture, form natural attachment and continued caring for a women's offspring is paramount insurance to the infant's future.
The intentional destruction to the newborn's psychological future is further damaged by the substitute caregiver that is not biologically driven to provide the nurturing that only the infant's biological mother is programmed to provide. The substitute mother is not acting on the child's best interests, that can only be provided and satisfied by the infant's biological mother. The substitute mother is driven by her own selfish needs and what the substitute mother wants and desires at a particular point in time. Due to the lack of biologic hormonal drive the substitute mother's self satisfying delusion that her wealth, charity and status are somehow superior, beneficial and what the infant needs, over the infant's biological family. To the newborn infant
fancy clothing, furniture and being driven around in an expensive car does not equal the satisfying genetic bond of attachment while being quietly breastfed by the infant's natural mother. The adoptive mother spends time buying things for the newborn infant, but the infant can't appreciate without vocabulary and speech, can't utilize as the infant has not developed motor skills, and the child can't express to the substitute mother that he is grateful to the substitute mother for her role in saving the child from his own natural life. The infant's continued confusion over the natural mothers absence. Over time the natural mother does not return causing the mortal wound of the mother's non-presence.
The missing mother causes the infant to experience his first psychological trauma, upon the infants emergence at birth.
This monumental life altering event of the infant being severed from his mother is the most drastic circumstance resulting in serious psychological damage of the infant's ego, perception and future ability to interact in all future relationships that can never be repaired. The infant's loss cause many self coping mechanisms such as the hyperventilate state of nervous anxiety, depression, anger and mistrust. The
continuous daily struggle includes several ill behaviors including
frustration of the absent mother experience that the infant can not cognitively interpret the missing mother is reconciled as general loss that will haunt the child throughout his life, the child's primal wound. The adopted child's condition is further exacerbated by the irregular treatment and lack of the needed stimulation that only the missing mother can provide her child. The inattention and inadequacy of the various deficient substitute caregivers, including the adoptive mother are ignorant to the infant's suffering and the desperate need of his biological mother continues on unsatisfied and neglected.
The substitute mother's inconsistent presence, the common parading of the infant handed over time and again to many loud scary people passing around the homesick infant. wearing scratchy lace attire, uncomfortable tight head straps of bows and hats cause the infant to associate negatively of the presence of all of the substitute mothers. Too many caregivers, the siblings, new changing babysitters. Though some adoptive mothers utilize a third primary care giver nanny to provide temporary care, feeding and diaper changes. There is no quiet, closeness or person to bond without constant changes, noise, without routine causing the infant continued stress, dissatisfaction and fear.
