Primal Wounding and Attachment Flaws Consequences of Adopted Child's Abandonment


Factual Attachment outline and the Adopted Child's Primary Wound, Compensation and Defense Mechanism. The Foundation of Adopted Child's human Relationship Flaws Lies in the Primal Wounding at Birth's Rejection Consequences in Adoptee's Life. 
Childhood Developmental Psychology Reflects the structure of Normal Biological Child Development that's Foundation is laid and supported through the Development of Healthy Attachment by the Primary Caregiver that is the infant's Biological Parent. 

The Psychology of the Adopted Child Stands Outside of Mainstream Theoretical Propositions and Psychological Theories. 

Attachment theory

Attachment theory, originally developed by John Bowlby, focuses on the importance of open, intimate, emotionally meaningful relationships between the maternal driven mother and her offspring, labeled the infant's primary caregiver attachment relationship. Attachment is described as the essential biological system driven by pregnancy and post partum hormones that provide a powerful survival impulse that evolved to ensure the protection and survival of the infant. A child who is threatened or stressed will move toward caregivers who create a sense of physical, emotional and psychological safety for the infant individual. Primary Attachment feeds on body contact, nurturing behavior and familiarity.
Later Mary Ainsworth developed the Strange Situation protocol and the concept of the secure base of contact.
There are four types of attachment styles: 1. secure, 2. anxious-avoidant, 3. anxious-resistant, and 4. disorganized attachment. #1. Secure attachment is a healthy attachment between the infant  and the caregiver. It is characterized by trust.                                  #2. Anxious-avoidant is an insecure attachment between an infant and a caregiver. This is characterized by the infant's indifference toward the caregiver.                                                                            #3. Anxious-resistant is an insecure attachment between the infant and the caregiver characterized by distress from the infant when separated and anger when reunited.                                                 #4. Disorganized is an attachment style without a consistent pattern of responses upon return of the parent.
In Child Adoption The primary Attachment bond that began in the second trimester of pregnancy is abruptly severed at birth, by spacial and physical separation of the child from the mother. The rejected infant becomes emotionally distraught by the separation and continues to seek the familiarity of the biological mother without result. The forced severing of the biological bond results in the primal wounding of the infant's abandonment. The infant becomes hindered in its natural tendency to form a primary attachment to it's biological mother. Infants that are raised without the stimulation and attention of the biological caregiver, and continuous care-giving or locked away under conditions of abuse or extreme neglect. The short-term effects of maternal deprivation are anger, despair, detachment, including the temporary delay in intellectual development. Long-term effects include increased aggression, clinging behavior, detachment, psychosomatic disorders, and an increased risk of depression as an adult.
