Therapeutic Parenting Podcast: Episode 6

Updated: Jan 26

Why a Child from Trauma Fears Adoption


Today's guest, Rosie Jefferies, the Managing Director of COECT, talks frankly about the fears and emotions she experienced as a small child at the start of her adoption journey.


Rosie's profound early life trauma meant she was understandably distrustful of all adults. Indeed she viewed them as dangerous to herself and to her four younger siblings.


In this podcast she gives a moving description of the fearful emotions she felt on moving in with her adoption family for the first time.


She contrasts the dark of her past with the bright light of the new family home which eventually came to represent safety and security to her.
