About Adoptee Rage

Statistics Identify large populations of Adoptees in prisons, mental hospitals and committed suicide.
Fifty years of scientific studies on child adoption resulting in psychological harm to the child and
poor outcomes for a child's future.
Medical and psychological attempts to heal the broken bonds of adoption, promote reunions of biological parents and adult children. The other half of attempting to repair a severed Identity is counselling therapy to rebuild the self.

The Natural Recognition within the Mother-Infant Dyad

The Natural Recognition within the Mother-Infant Dyad ____________________________________________________________

The biological, genetically-linked mother-infant-dyad is a closed synchronized system. The mother's signature acoustic fingerprint is her tone of voice, the signature "voiceprint" that is identified by the infant in the womb. The mother's olfactory signature chemical odor is recognized by the infant in utero, post childbirth the child's signature odor is recognized by the mother and both mother and infant can distinguish these signature odors from other individuals as "NOT Right". There can never be a substitute for the mother-infant-dyad without physical trauma and psychological consequences for the infant and mother. 

Due to the fact that the mother-infant-dyad is a closed synchronization system, the mother and infant can regulate eachother's biological systems such as heartbeat synchronization. Emotional regulation and the dyad's nonverbal communication. 

The mother-infant dyad is a closed system where the infant believes they are one, that the infant is the mother-and-self as a single unit. Around 12-18 months the infant begins to mature and recognize that he is separate from the mother. This natural progression of events is time and maturity related. when the infant is secure in the dyad, he spontaneously begins to develop a predictable "sense of self" that allows him to separate from the dyad by choice, yet remains in close proximity to the mother as a distinct separate individual. 

The act of disrupting this natural dyad is NOT NATURAL, and there are tragic consequences to disrupting this natural relationship that is the foundation for human interaction and psychological stability.  

All studies of the Mother-Infant Dyad are based on biological genetic tied dyads.
Humans, like other mammals, are capable of discriminating between kin and non‐kin by olfactory cues alone. Shortly after birth, breastfed infants become familiar with, and respond preferentially to, their mother' unique odor signature. Mothers likewise recognize the characteristic scent of their newborn infant. Close biological relatives share somewhat similar odor signatures (presumably resulting from genetically mediated similarities in bodily biochemistry and metabolism) that facilitate kin recognition.

Maternal and Paternal Perception of Individual Odor Signatures in Human Amniotic Fluid – Potential Role in Early Bonding?

Both human mothers and fathers are able to discriminate the odors of 2 samples of amniotic fluid (AF), one from their own newborn infant and one from an unrelated infant. Moreover, both parents are able to accurately identify the odor of the AF from their own infant. They report qualitative similarity descriptions of their infant’s AF odor to the odor of the actual newborn infant and to the odor of the mother, especially at the end of gestation. These data indicate that human AF carries individualized odor properties, the roles of which in the initiation of parent-infant interactions are hypothesized.

Is there a greater bond than that of mother and baby?

The preliminary findings of a recent study provide evidence of another facet of that bond and demonstrate further that electromagnetic waves produced by one person’s heartbeat can be detected by the brains and nervous systems of others around them.
A summary of Proof of Concept Study: Heart-Brain Synchronization between Mother and Baby notes that researchers “explored the potential to measure energetic heart-brain interactions that may be occurring between a mother and her infant.” The study, conducted in August 2007, was done while the infant was in the mother’s lap.

Researchers, who began the investigation with two women and their infants but were only able to use the data for one of the mothers and her baby, recorded a number of examples clearly showing the baby’s heartbeat was detected in the mother’s brain waves.
“This preliminary data elucidates the intriguing finding that the electromagnetic signals generated by the heart have the capacity to affect others around us,” the summary says. “The signal was not always detectable, but was clearly detectable when the mother tuned into the baby. It appears that when the mother placed her attention on the baby that she became more sensitive to the subtle electromagnetic signals generated by the infant’s heart.”

“Although preliminary, these results add to the growing data suggesting that the electromagnetic fields produced by the heart may be a source of information exchange between people, and that this exchange is influenced by our emotions,” the summary states. “These findings have intriguing implications, suggesting that a mother in a psychophysiologically coherent state became more sensitive to the subtle electromagnetic information encoded in the electromagnetic signals of her infant.”
The researchers said the findings complement the experience of instructors who have trained thousands of people how to self-generate and maintain coherence while listening to others in conversations. “Once individuals learn this skill, it is a common experience that they become much more attuned to other people and are able to detect and understand the deeper meaning behind spoken words,” they said in the summary. “They are often able to sense what someone else really wishes to communicate even when the other person may not be clear about that which he is attempting to say. This technique, called Intuitive Listening, helps people to feel fully heard and promotes greater rapport and empathy between people.”
At the outset of the mother-and-baby study, researchers noted that it was intended as a pilot project. After releasing the preliminary findings, they said the data would help the HeartMath research team in formulating hypotheses, methodology and statistical analysis for future research projects.
