Estrangement is a very common outcome of adoption and fostering. We all deserve to be safe and respect our mental, physical, emotional and psychological health and many times estrangement is the only option. #adopteetwitter #adopteevoices #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth pic.twitter.com/6MCHsEEVe4— Lina Vanegas (She/her) (@LinaLeadsWLove) May 18, 2023
I'm a member of several online adoptee-only support groups, and it's astonishing how many of us are estranged from our adoptive families. #AdopteeVoices #AdopteeTwitter https://t.co/ZAL6HMDXXS— Jill Daviau 😷 (@neithskye) May 19, 2023

Adoption Illusions and Stockholm Syndrome
"...I’ve been thinking about this concept for a long time. Adopters, when it comes right down to it, count on Stockholm Syndrome. Children who don’t succumb are labelled RAD.
Whenever I encounter an infertile woman so desperate to be a mother that she’ll bring home a stranger’s baby and force it to live in her fantasy, I always secretly wonder what she would do if she were single and desperate to be married.
Would she drag some strange man home and force him to watch the Notebook and cuddle? And if she did, would society think it was beautiful and precious? Or would they think she was delusional and dangerous? Rhetorical question, of course. But why? Why is what is clearly a crime between adults viewed in such an overwhelmingly positive way when one of the parties is a child?..." - Renee Musgrove
