  •  Then again, it's not about adoption per se (5+ / 0-)

    It's about child development - all sorts of things happen to children from birth to three that have detrimental and beneficial effects.  "Adoption" can not be singled out - obviously a child being adopted as late as, or after three, has experienced TRAUMA that is going to affect the child there after.  
    A lot has to do with biology/genetics, how a child internalizes such life experiences. With some luck will end up in a family that adjusts to the child's individual needs.  Sometimes it's a matter of accepting that you have a child you love, will never bond with you and all you can do is parent the best you can, and offer the best you can, to help the child prepare for the many, many years ahead.
