12 26 15 Don’t Split the Baby: Lori Holden Encourages a Both/And Heartset in Open Adoption

OHWOA2Did you see the recent Kohl’s video featuring an adoption story line? Some found this adoption reunion heartwarming; others were bothered, as evidenced by heated comments. Lori Holden, repeat guest and author of The Open-Hearted Way to Open Adoption, observes that those who are bothered tend to be of an Either/Or mindset, a vestige of the closed adoption era. She offers that there is another way of looking at adoption, a way that encourages and enables the adopted person to heal the split between his biology and his biography. She shares insights how adoptive parents — and society at large — can shift instead to a Both/And heartset.
