Counseling the Adopted Child
Counselors must be aware of how adopted children interpret their worlds.
When adults understand these interpretations, they can respond more appropriately.
Allowing the adopted child to ask questions about the natural parents without feeling
hurt or anger is only part of the answer. The Redemptive view of adoption points out
that we are all adopted children. Human adoption redeems broken lives of children;
godly adoption redeems our brokenness and sinfulness.
