Hi brandx, I'm a transracial and transnational adoptee and recently I've started thinking about what this means for my identity. And thanks to your blog I learned that my brother (adopted transnationally/transracially from a diff country than myself) was diagnosed with RAD. I don't know what to think about all this. (1/?)
Thank you so much for writing, always glorious to hear from fellow international transracial adoptees. And I’m sorry for my delayed response, but this was very hard for me to write —
There is no easy way to say this, but your brother’s life is in danger. I’m a RAD survivor, and despite there being thousands of kids all throughout the Western world who’ve been subjected to the treatment purporting to treat this disorder that violates every human rights charter & childrens rights convention on earth, our rate of survival is almost nil, particularly among transracial/national adoptees.
quiltbagging PLEASE message me with your brother’s age, your country of residence (I’m assuming both of you live in the same nation), and any other of crucial info of his such as other diagnosed disorders (real or perceived) so I’ll be able to assist you much more and help ensure his safety.
if you think you are unattractive just remember you look like your ancestors and hey all of them got laid
but what if you were adopted
I’m not up on the whole genetics thing
if you’re adopted you still have to have biological ancestors right
No we don’t. We spawn fully formed at adoption agencies from miracles and moonshine.

As an adoptee i can confirm obscurity-bizarre’s statement. Also sometimes there are rainbows involved.
We also come fully stocked with Chosen One© prophecies and post-racial/feminist utopias in fulfilling lifelong roles as living, breathing bridges between rich white folks and the classes/races/tribes/nations they oppress! ♥♥
