Navigating Rejection: A Guide To The Core Issues Of Adoption

Exploring the emotional challenges faced by those involved in adoption

Embarking on the journey of adoption is a profoundly transformative experience. But, let’s address the reality – it is not without its own set of challenges. At the heart of these challenges lie the seven core issues of adoption, which wield a profound influence on the lives of all those engaged in the adoption journey.

Among these, the feeling of rejection stands out as a pervasive issue that echoes throughout the adoption constellation, also known as the combination of people who have been adopted, adoptive parents, and birth parents. The feeling of rejection is a complex and oftentimes painful issue, but it’s important to remember that it is not uncommon by any means.
