Martin Narey is entirely wrong in his belief that…

… and that …

So very very wrong.

Socialisation is what makes being adopted so hard. The socialisation adoptees get IS different, whether it’s politically correct to admit it or not.

Read Verrier and Lifton and Kirschner and Brodzinsky and learn that it’s actually far far harder than you currently believe. No matter how much you want it to be, it’s not “better”, it’s just different.

I have other post in progress, but just wanted to point ^that bit out.

  2. Martin Narey writes like someone who has not spent much (if any) time talking with but more importantly *listening* to adoptees. His comments concern me, as an adult adoptee age 41. I would hope that something in his message is being lost due to the brevity of twitter. I very much hope this man doesn’t have any power or influence on the adoption system. I also hope he never adopts if this is genuinely where he’s at.
