this weeks’ yellow sign
so for the column this tuesday I’ll be touching on adoption in some media I’ve been exposed to recently… the upcoming alterati column will cover Lucifer, Black Sheep, Lucifer Rising, and The Abandoned.
Anyway along the way I ran across this quote about the connection between adoptees and ADD…
I’ve always been fascinated by the connection between ADD and adoption by the way, that is the idea that young parents-to-be who have ADD and are untreated are more likely to forget to take birth control, more likely to get pregnant, and more likely to give up their babies for adoption, partially because of societal judgements, but also partially because of higher levels of impulsivity and poorer organizational skills, which translates into poorer parenting skills. Then the adoptees inherit ADD through genetics (There’s a huge study on this right now in N.A.) and continue the cycle of impulse control problems. – Aurelia from No Matter How Small
