Join us as we engage in a candid conversation with clinician Cameron Lee Small, author of The Adoptee’s Journey: From Loss and Trauma to Healing and Empowerment. Along with being a powerful memoir, The Adoptee’s Journey serves as a tool for all who wish to support those touched my adoption. As Cam shares. “Adoption is often framed by happy narratives, but the reality is that many adoptees struggle with unaddressed trauma and issues of identity and belonging. Adoptees often spend the majority of their youth without the language to explore the grief related to adoption or the permission to legitimize their conflicting emotions.” Cam describes these challenges beautifully, while also providing special focus on the impact of religious discourse on adoption narratives and identities.
