Adoption Deception : A Personal and Professional Journey by Penny Mackieson book TXT, MOBI


Have you ever wondered how it might feel to have been adopted in Australia during the pre-1980s era in which vulnerable young mothers were coerced into relinquishing their babies? How it might feel to have grown up, become a social worker and worked with vulnerable children and families? How it might have felt to hear Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard's moving speech in March 2013, which apologized to the hundreds of thousands of people affected by the unethical adoption policies and practices prior to the 1980s and vowed to ensure that such practices are never repeated? How it might have felt to hear the announcement made only nine months later by new Prime Minister Tony Abbott, who had given his party's support to the Gillard Apology, of his intention to expand and expedite intercountry adoptions by Australians? How could someone in such a position respond to the re-popularization and deregulation of adoption in Australia? This book provides answers to those difficult questions. Adoption Deception presents the personal and professional reflections of Penny Mackieson, an Australian adoptee and social worker, on issues associated with adoption - many of which are shared with donor conception and surrogacy. For anyone with an experience of or interest in adoption, whether personal or professional, who is open to perspectives other than those selectively portrayed by populist mainstream media, this book will provide invaluable insights., What is it like to be adopted, have your identity changed and never feel quite at home in your new family, despite being loved? What is it like to become a social worker and be faced with the challenges and consequences of other adoptions every day? What is it like to hear the moving National Apology for Forced Adoptions by Prime Minister Julia Gillard in 2013 only to be faced a few months later by a new prime minister intent on forgetting all the lessons learnt and championing a deregulated parent-centred market-driven adoption industry? Penny Mackieson takes us on her journey with the unique perspective of both an adopted person and a professional who worked in intercountry adoption for over a decade. She unravels the complexities, debunks the myths, analyses the policies and raises important questions about the ethical and human rights dilemmas in adoption. Adoption Deception: A personal and professional journey is a passionate, heart-wrenching and unflinchingly honest account of one woman's life as an adopted person and her campaign for change. The author presents a compelling argument for Permanent Care instead of adoption for vulnerable children unable to he raised by their families. Book jacket.
