Conclusion/Call to action
Studies show that the rate of anxiety and depression in adopted kids is more than double that of the general population.

We need to educate adoptive parents on how to deal with the depression their adoptive child may face, to avoid confusion and stress. So that the child and the parents can finally feel like a family.
