My thoughts in 2012? What is classic news coverage when a celebrity adopts?
Bravo for Madonna, Brad and Angelina, Elton John, Ms. Sheryl Crow, and all the others.
We know it's not possible to hide anything when you're the celebrity and you adopt.
Public Relations is for us to think how great and wonderful the adopter is and how lucky the adoptee is, right?
Had Ms. Crow considered how the news would affect her sons Levi and Wyatt when they're adult men? They did not choose to be abandoned or adopted. They had no privacy. How will they feel being called the adopted sons of Sheryl Crow forever? Did Entertainment Tonight consider the boys rights before they showed their photos?
Does Madonna or Crow have a clue how adoptees are treated by their peers and bio-siblings in the real world?
How will Crow shield them from the cruel bastard label and the embarrassment they were abandoned by their own mothers? Will Levi and Wyatt be expected to show their gratitude to her and be silent around her about everything else?
Or were these open adoptions so the boys will know their natural mother's identity, their ancestry and their medical history? We can only hope, right?
Did Ms. Crow hire a surrogate? That's never mentioned but it won't change the boys emotional trauma.
What horrible thing happened that her sons were not able to be raised by their own mothers? That's carefully omitted in adoption propaganda and celebrity stories. They'll direct our attention to the famous rich person and have us forget the birth mothers and her loss entirely. The adoptee is considered lucky and now rich.
Do celebrities ever wonder how an adoptee feels after adoption?
Crow is rich and famous, but her boys will still require truth, reality and plenty of emotional support! Makes you wonder if Crow has a clue about birth psychology, their severe narcissistic injury, PTSD and an adoptee's primal wound (read Nancy Verrier). There's trouble ahead if Crow denies it exists.
Publicity fills the ego of the celebrity narcissist and the hungry public eats it up.
We are supposed to believe Crow SAVED these boys, right? That's one of the adoption industry's clever ways to keep its business running smooth and encourage more women to abandon their children for adoption to the rich, better-off and famous. Forget those pesky rumors about reactive attachment disorders in adoptees!
Sappy stories about MS. CROW ahd her two adopted sons is great publicity for her obviously- but not for the two boys who will have to deal with their adoptee label and adoption trauma their entire life... Trace
