The Adoptee Journey

This is your BIG Trigger Warning

This is a personal blog. It's about attachment problems and childhood trauma. Maternal narcisissm, abusive relationships and bad consequences like addiction, rape, unhealthy promiscuity and mental health issues. But there's also recovery, treatment, diagnosis, and reframing perspective.

Some entries are questions I haven't answered yet. Some outline the ways I've healed. Most are personal. There are 100+ posts on this blog and more coming. Everything is a work in progress, as am I.

Our voices have been suppressed. There's still not enough awareness of the trauma we experience, especially the way it leads to multiple interconnected traumas. If you experienced trauma directly or indirectly because of your adoption, please consider contributing your anonymised data & experience for my research project.
