I think this is one of the reasons us “happy adoptees” (i.e. as opposed to the kids who acted out) do what we do.  Part is the people-pleasing brought about by shame and terror of being abandoned again (however far buried inside us) and part is this. We know what it’s like, and no person should feel this way.

It's lovely to have you here. Please keep comments respectful of the adoptees who read here. "Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle."
