Dumping Day

I am on my way shortly to a meeting where a pre-teen child is to be told by his long term adoptive parents that they are giving up their parental rights to him. I am willing to bet – almost to guarantee (assuming the boy even chooses to come to the meeting) – that the parents will blame the child for their decision. I further (almost) guarantee that their blame will consist of portraying him as someone who is barely short of being a monster.

Those two themes – blame: specifically blaming someone else for your decisions; and portraying others as monstrous beings – I will come back to in this blog. Probably next entry, but also certainly repeatedly over the course of time.
