An ICU for Hurting Adoptees?

Where can you take an adoptee for intensive help? If you go to the psych unit at the hospital, they don’t even mention adoption-related trauma as a possible issues of depression, anxiety, or self-destructive thoughts and behaviors.


There is a place, online, where adoptees can go and be with other adoptees who’ve been where they are and who will help them identify what’s going on inside and how to navigate to health.
This group was a 501c3 and founded by Jewel Among Jewels Adoption Network.

Here are some of the symptoms that indicate adoptees need an ICU:
• “I feel like something’s missing.”
• “I often feel like I don’t belong.”
• “I blow up easily and hurt others.”
• “I sometimes fantasize about my birth family.”
• “I am confused about my identity.”
• “I push myself to be perfect.”
• “I am terrified of rejection.”
• “I struggle with self-esteem.”
• “I get uptight whenever I think about meeting my birth family.”
To join the group, you must be an adoptee! Contact Sherrie
Beth Willis Miller is the facilitator and does a wonderful job of reaching out to fellow adoptees. Thank you Beth for all you do!

    Here is a short video worth watching–it is of Lisa Floyd, who has dramatically changed, even since this video was taken. She has found her birth family and is going to Anderson University to become an adoption therapist.

    You have to see the history of changed lives to really know how powerful this material is. Of course, it is God’s Word that changes lives and learning that Moses, who struggled with the same issues adoptees do today, gives modern-day adoptees hope….because Moses became one of the greatest leaders of all time, was called a friend of God, and is the only person who saw God face to face.
