Carried in Our Hearts

Carried in Our Hearts free read ↠ 106 Jane Aronson ↠ 6 summary E boy’s courageous birthmother; actor Mary Louise Parker whose older adopted son’s bond with her newly adopted baby daughter was deep and unwavering from the instant the two children met; and Lynn Danzker an entrepreneur who set off alone to adopt her son Cole and in the process met and married her husband The authors of these testimonies range from doctors to filmmakers from financial consultants to celebrities all of them bound by their moving and transformative experience as adoptive parent I had really reuested this book bc this author is a very well known adoption doctor and so I kind of thought it was about her I thought the entire title was just Carried in Our Hearts but once I got the book itself I realized it s just a compilation of adoption stories Oh well it was still interestingIt is a compilation of stories from many international adoptive families divided and organized into about 6 categories such as waiting meeting each other coming home and getting acclimated etc The tales are heartwarming indeed and you walk away thinking Gee this is really a book of how ordinary people can do extraordinary things Really And I am including the adoptive children in this assessment These kids do completely extraordinary things in being uprooted in many cases multiple times first from birth family then to an orphanage or foster family sometimes another transition or two in there even before being adopted then adopted into hopefully a forever family Kids are so brave and your heart really breaks when you start to think about what these kids go through On the other hand I do think the book has some weaknesses Not surprisingly the book draws heavily from Dr Aronson s patient lists so that means the families skew heavily NortheasternNew Yorkers WEALTHY if not wealthy certainly not lacking in financial means and in many cases Jewish So it s not really a representative sample of what American international adoption looks like It is just one snapshot of what SOME adoptive families look like Nothing wrong with this just something to keep in mind while reading I believeIt also does not focus on long term acclimation attachment etc Therefore I think it in some ways paints adoption superficially as feel good Lastly I think the main strength or the most salient take away for me personally was only touched upon a bit in Dr Aronson s summary at the end In it she talks about how the face of international adoption in the US has changed so radically since its height in 2004 Since then many countries have closed and the entire operation has contracted severely She even has had to reduce her patient days from 5 to 3 bc the demand is just not there any The effect of the Hague Convention on Adoption cannot be underestimated and though well meaning to introduce transparency reduce fraud it had the unintended effect of dampening adoption so heavily that some agencies had to close some countries had to withdraw from adoptions entirely bc they were not Hague compliant etc The result There are still orphans but they just cannot be adopted Where are they Living in group homes foster homes orphanages etc in their home countires Adoption people can and do argue and discuss the benefits and downsides of Hague until the cows come home but Aronson comes down on the side of it being too heavily restrictive Currently the only countries that have systemic adoption to the US are China South Korea Taiwan Ethiopia one I am forgetting Colombia and the rest are just a few random smatterings probably arranged privately
