Fear of rejection is like a monkey on the backs of many adopted kids, teens, and adults. Most tend to see rejection when none was intended. The turning around instead of being face to face. An unanswered text. Being stood up for a date with a first parent. Is this a permanent disability? Will adopted kids ever get over it? Can they throw the monkey off their back? Only with hard personal work can we heal. However, healing doesn’t mean that the tendency goes away. No. It means that we aren’t triggered by it anymore. It is possible! I’m writing a book about it right now.
