Adopted Children Psychological Isolation Process
Isolation Thought Patterns & Verbal Isolation Dialog
Infants born and separated from their maternal dyad are not only maternal and sensitivity deprived, they are forced into the phase of self concept six to nine months premature.The forced premature self-concept
traumatizes the infant and causes the self awareness of the infant perceived as terror, grief and isolation that is eventually understood as familiar and comfort in being alone. The primary biological relationship of
attachment in the mother-infant dyad is severed and all new attempts by substitute caregivers will fail the infant's sensory test and the infant will reject them. The only hope for substitute adoptive mothers is to form a secondary attachment that is based on food and nurturing if the adoptive mother is patient, college educated, possesses mental security and emotional stability to deal with the chronic stress of the constantly rejecting infant. The quick to react, uneducated, too emotionally sensitive and mental instability in the adoptive mother will jeopardize, risk and be under the constant threat of abuse by the adoptive mother. The life of the adopted child is of little value in contrast to the adoption industry in the United States which is unfortunate to abandoned, relinquished and wards of the state children. The psychological defense mechanisms used by adopted children to survive their adopted childhoods are confused and mistaken by parents and adoptee's as personality. The adoptee depends on these defense mechanisms necessary in childhood, yet emerge into adolescent and adulthood without the same levels of adult development and lacking the most important psychological development of true identity needed to become and grow into an emotionally normal, psychologically healthy individual.
