In the past few weeks, I’ve had a number of conversations with adoptees, adoptive parents, and others about the changing adoption landscape. Many have mentioned that they can feel/see the shifting power dynamic between adoptees and adoption agencies/adoption establishment. What’s contributing to this, ah, “phenomena”? I don’t know for sure. Maybe because adoptees put out super intense projects like this?
Maybe because adoptees put together serious, insightful, and thought provoking conferences like this?
Maybe because much of what adoptees do is “sexier” than the bland, never changing “adoption information meetings”? You decide. In the meantime, adoptees will continue to rock.
