Effort Justification of Adoptive Parents
Theory and research
In Adoptive ParentsThe goal of becoming adoptive parents, the process of adoption
and the end of the process where the reward is the child obtained legally. The legal process is perceived as intrusive, and
humiliating. When the goal is achieved the triumph over the process is understood as conquered. Although the process is in place to protect children from mentally dangerous and pathological personality disorders, which sometimes fails the child. The humiliation the adoptive parent feels (during the paperwork and background checks) gives rise to the adoptive parent's entitlement and ownership over the adoptive child,
and the adoptive child is placed in a position of dominance by the entitlement of the adoptive parent. Which plays out as a result of the process as a master and servant relationship.
