Guillotine Effect of Adoption

"Neither Here Nor There...": "The 'Guillotine' Effect of Adoption" by Myst: The "Guillotine" effect of Adoption by Myst, who blogs at: " Living in the Shadows"   

Excerpt:

"Thus, the Guillotine. The child experiences this (besides other experiences) by way of his or her family tree being brutally cut off and all those who went before her or him, all those who existed in her/his family for generations stretching back in time, wiped away. By law, adopted persons are magically grafted into their adoptive families' heritage... negating the fact they have another family, another heritage - one that flows through their veins, shows in their personalities, in their being. The guillotine of adoption law wipes it all out."


Many adoptees who I talk with say this brutal cut-off and severing of our connection to family and tribe makes it hard to fathom WHO could write such brutal laws and insist today they are still right and good. Who did this? Who made these laws - church leaders? politicians? Who could be so cruel and barbaric to cut-off any chance of adoptees contacting their natural parents and tribal families? 
Every single closed adoption law needs to be overturned and erased forever ... Write your state governments and tell them your story - why adoption laws need to change - tell them about our history as American Indian adoptees...  Trace, an adoptee for life.....

FYI: http://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/entry/Guillotine

The Nazi Party employed it extensively—twenty guillotines were in use in Germany which, from 1938, included Austria. In Nazi Germany, beheading by guillotine was the usual method of executing convicted criminals as opposed to political enemies, who were usually either hanged or shot. An exception was made for the six members of the White Rose anti-Nazi resistance organization, who were beheaded in 1943. The Nazis have been estimated to have guillotined some 40,000 people in Germany and Austria—possibly more than were beheaded during the French Revolution.[3]

ADOPTION TRUTH

As the single largest unregulated industry in the United States, adoption is viewed as a benevolent action that results in the formation of “forever families.”
The truth is that it is a very lucrative business with a known sales pitch. With profits last estimated at over $1.44 billion dollars a year, mothers who consider adoption for their babies need to be very aware that all of this promotion clouds the facts and only though independent research can they get an accurate account of what life might be like for both them and their child after signing the adoption paperwork.

Our Fault? (no)
