Impish Posted June 8, 2012 Share Posted June 8, 2012 Here's a thought that occurred to me, reading the thread about attachment issues. While I *completely* agree that agencies should be addressing potential attachment issues and bonding stratagies, and emphasizing those, I also wonder, w/all the information on the net, why there are still adoptive parents who seem completely unawares of these potential issues. When Wolf and I were discussing adoption, RAD came quickly to the surface of potential issues. Do ppl have such faith and trust in agencies that they don't do any outside research? Do agencies deliberately downplay these issues? Please don't misunderstand me, I'm not trying to point fingers or anything. It just seems like such a critical issue in adoption, and I'm wondering what more can be done so that families are really aware and able to take action to create the needed bonding from day one. I mean, you can't know it's a critical issue if you haven't heard of it, kwim? Part of me does wonder if agencies are as open about it as perhaps they should be, simply b/c it could very well scare off potential adoptive families.
