A few quotes:
I often find that being adopted is never enough of a unifier for our community to stand firm in solidarity. Even the idea of “giving voice to the adoptee” is not “giving A voice to the adoptee.” Unfortunately, so much of where we grew up, how we grew up, events that triggered our epigenes along with time, place and age of adoption can challenge us to realize that we cannot always stand with our brothers and sisters in adoption.
I wish we adoptees knew our power. We keep demanding a seat at the table, but the reality is our table is set but the only ones with dance cards are the ones in support of international adoption continuing status quo. Whenever one person stands up in support of adoption, they get lots of air play. If there are adoptees who come against it, they are looked at as rogue, dissenting, angry and not given time unless they create it themselves via facebook or change.org. With great power comes great responsibility.
