Challenges. Adoptive families have their own unique Lifestyle and culture. When
adoptive parents share their frustration About their children with family
members , friends, Teachers and others; People often respond with Disbelief or
criticism. Others do not understand the extent of the chronic trauma, Due
to neglect, physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse or a combination of
abuses, the majority of adoptive children have suffered through in Their
past. As an adoptive parent myself, there were many times My wife and I Would
relive the Chronic trauma of our children. As an adoptive parent It's important
to build a healthy support network with those who truly understand The
challenges of being an adoptive parent. Therefore As an adoptive parent , I
highly recommend Becoming involved with a local adoptive parent support group.
And if you do not have an adoptive support group in your area, start one
yourself. If you Don't know how ask me!
