Written By Mirah Riben for the huffingtonpost.com
Adoption wounds. It wounds the souls of the children and their mothers and fathers who are torn apart in order to form new families. We also know now that trauma passes genetically to future generations. It behooves us, thus, to work to reduce adoption trauma as we might seek to reduce war trauma. Find other solutions. To avoid war and its everlasting toll, we must work harder on peaceful negotiations and financial reprisals. To avoid adoption trauma, we need to work harder on family preservation and to provide resources for families in crisis.
