Non-existent Attachment In Adopted Child and Adoptive Mother Relationship, The Biological Based Maternal Sensitivity Primary Attachment In Biologically Reared Child


Maternal Sensitivity Primary Attachment in Biologically Raised children, Unknown to Adopted Children. __________________________________________

The Maternal Sensitivity bond within Non-Verbal Language Interaction 

The primary maternal attachment bond that enables the intuitive maternal sensitivity between the mother-child dyad, is a complex biological relationship. The signature and fingerprint of biological uniqueness and the genetic one-of-a-kind non-verbal, verbal and body language that constitutes the interactions between a biological mother and her infant offspring. The non-verbal biological interactions between the mother and the fetus constitutes the biological relationship between the mother and child known as a dyad. The mother-child dyad exists as a state of being from conception, throughout pregnancy and continued after the birthing process. Where the mother's natural maternal drive provides the necessary chemical motivations and energy from the maternal hormone releases to nurture and care for the offspring post birth.  

The hormone oxytocin, which induces maternal behavior, and motivates the continued nurturing within the mother-child dyad of primary attachment. 

Adoptive mothers do not possess maternal hormones, that is necessary to promote maternal behavior. Adoptive mothers lacking necessary biological maternal drives (that naturally develop in pregnancy and are enacted in the birthing phase) have a difficult time forming attachment bonds with the adopted child.

But hormones are only part of the story. Attachments take time, and postpartum depression or other mental health problems can disrupt the process.

Bonding with adoptive children is similar. Some parents feel an immediate emotional connection, while others struggle for months or years. A study last month in the Western Journal of Nursing Research found that adoptive parents can experience "post-adoption depression" when their expectations about the adoption experience aren't met. These parents often report difficulty bonding with the child.
Disrupted adoptions
While bonding may be slow, most adoptions work out. According to a review of American adoptions in the book Clinical and Practice Issues in Adoption (Greenwood Publishing Group, 1998), 80 percent of placements make it to legalization. After the paperwork is in, the success rate was 98 percent.
But in extreme cases, the adoption "disrupts," and the child is sent back to the agency or foster home. This process is rarely as dramatic as Artyom's unaccompanied flight from Washington, D.C., to Moscow, but the case matches previous research in other ways. The risk of adoption disruption increases with age, from less than 1 percent in infants to up to 26 percent for kids adopted after age 15, according two 1988 studies.
The second of those studies, published in the journal Social Work, found a disruption rate of 10 percent for children adopted between the ages of 6 and 8. Artyom was 7 when he came to America.
