I live in Canada now, and the recent news has been talking about the country’s senate’s hearings and report on the Baby Scoop targeted destruction of Indigenous communities here via adoption: [link] and [link]. Much talk about “healing”, and “moving forward”, etc. Australia did something similar 10 years ago [link]. I’ll hold off on adding my 2¢ just yet, but I’m curious to hear from adoptees what you think of such apologies. What is their value? What do they change? Do they allow for healing? What are your thoughts?
