3 Assumptions Often Made About Adoptees

Much of the world is wholeheartedly banking on these three assumptions about adoptees.  

1) We know or remember little of what happens to us at the time of our relinquishment and adoption.

2) We are “blank slates” when we come into this world, ready to be molded by our surroundings.
