Adopting Sibling Groups

Adopting Sibling Groups

Adopting Sibling Groups Kim Curey, LSW SASS 505 Adoption: Practice and Policy Why Parents Should Consider Adopting Sibling Groups Siblings are each others constants during young childhood both as companions and playmates. Siblings learn to interact with the outside world through games played and conversations with each other. At some point in adolescence, siblings who were once close may temporarily weaken their ties when they exert their individuality and independence.

The sibling bond exists in children raised in normal families, but it is even stronger in children from dysfunctional families. They have learned from a very early age to depend on and cooperate with each other to cope with their common problems. Siblings who have been separated in foster care or through adoption have their emotional burden added to; because these children have already had to cope with the separation/loss of their parents, they must experience the grieving

process all over again if they are then separated from their siblings. If these children have experienced abuse and/or neglect at the hand of their parents, they will often have stronger ties to each other than to their natural parents and that makes this separation even more traumatic. The bond between brothers and sisters is special. Being/having a sibling is the longest lasting relationship most people have. While the bond may change at different points in a relationship, a person's journey for personal identity is undeniably intertwined with their siblings.
