Impact of Adoption
While the adoption process impacts every member of the adoption triad differently, perhaps no individual is as heavily impacted as the one with no say in the journey — the adoptee.
Being adopted is a huge part of someone’s identity, but it’s not always an easy personal journey. For better or for worse, an individual’s adoption history will be a part of their lives forever. It’s something they must make peace with and accept before they can move forward in a healthy and positive way.
