Adoption Is Traumatizing
It is common practice now to view the act of adoption as a trauma to a child. Even in the best case scenarios, there is trauma both in the separation from biological mother, and the integration into a new family. Often, there are several traumas in between as well.

Every child processes their traumas differently. What trauma processing looks like in one child will be completely different from another. For many children, dealing with their loss won't even be visible to outsiders. Counseling should be an assumed need for adopted children, as should learning about Trauma Informed Care.
