Top 5 Things You Should Never Say or Do to an Adoptee

Rule #1: Never abandon, break up, or reject an adoptee with no explanation (ex. relationships, friendships, love)

Rule# 2 Never tell an adoptee "You should be thankful...". You have no idea what some adoptees have experienced

Rule #3 Never tell an adoptee "At least you weren't aborted...you had a chance to live"

Rule #4 Never think just because a child was adopted that they had a better life.

Rule #5 Never tell an adoptee how they should feel about being adopted. Everyone has a unique journey.  

Have any more rules to add? Please post in the comment area. I would love to read and share them.
