Counseling the Adopted Child

Journal of Biblical Counseling 25:1

In this article, Julie Lowe argues that 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. Lowe maintains that the Redemptive view of adoption points out that we are all adopted children. She concludes that human adoption redeems broken lives of children; godly adoption redeems our brokenness and sinfulness.
