If you have seen the Paramount Pictures movie, Instant Family, written and directed by Sean Anders, then you are familiar with the types of challenges Maxon and Roszia address in their new book Seven Core Issues in Adoption and Permanency: A Comprehensive Guide to Promoting Understanding and Healing in Adoption, Foster Care, Kinship Families and Third-Party Reproduction (2019). According to Seneca Orange County over 50,000 children in California are waiting for a safe home and loving family. Maxon and Roszia’s work illuminates the issues and offers tools to support people who chose to adopt and the youth/children who are adopted as they develop into a family and enter as a unit into a neighborhood, school system, religious and youth organizations, and the local community.

Based on a hugely successful US model, the Seven Core Issues in Adoption is the first conceptual framework of its kind to offer a unifying lens that was inclusive of all individuals touched by the adoption experience.

The Seven Core Issues are Loss, Rejection, Shame/Guilt, Grief, Identity, Intimacy, and Mastery/Control. The book expands the model to be inclusive of adoption and all forms of permanency: adoption, foster care, kinship care, donor insemination, and surrogacy. Attachment and trauma are integrated with the Seven Core Issues model to address and normalize the additional tasks individuals and families will encounter.

The book views the Seven Core Issues from a range of perspectives including multi-racial, LGBTQ, Hispanic, Asian, Native American, African-American, International, openness, search and reunion, and others. This essential guide introduces each Core Issue, its impact on individuals, offering techniques for growth and healing.
