I really appreciate this conversation. Thank you. I blog about adoption, and am an adoptive parent. An AAP study has shown adoptees are 4 times more likely to attempt suicide than non-adoptees. How can we in the adoption community, often fighting the traditional adoption narrative that adoption is win-win and without trauma, best help adoptees?

Thank you! I’m ordering both books and posting about them on my blog. This month (coincidentally National Adoption Awareness Month) saw two international adoptees (ages 12 and 14) die by suicide. As it always does, their deaths rocked our community. I am always open to additional resources.
