There’s Hope for Attachment Issues: Adoptee Transitions from Abusing His Adoptive Parents to Sharing His Success Story
Thanks to Mark Coen, adoptive dad and world authority on attachment issues, we get an opportunity to hear directly from an adoptee with an amazing success story.
Jordan, tells us in no uncertain terms what it was like to be dropped off at the hospital with a fractured skull as a babyl, and then sent into the foster care system. Even after his adoption, Jordan refused to believe that anyone cared, he was thrown out of every preschool and alternative school, he delighted in setting fires, and was abusive towards his adoptive parents.
This is a true testament to what adoption specialists can do, although Mark would be the first person to tell you, it doesn’t always end with such a happy story.
