Post-adoption depression and parent attachment disorder are surprisingly common and seldom talked about. After all, since they’ve tried so hard to become parents, many adoptive parents are ashamed to admit that they are struggling. In this course, Dr. Jane Aronson, a board-certified general pediatrician and pediatric infectious diseases specialist, and adoption medicine specialist for the past 12 years, talks about post-adoption depression. She is a clinical assistant professor of pediatrics at the Weill Medical College of Cornell University and the founder of World Wide Orphan Foundation. Dr. Aronson is also the author of, Carried in Our Hearts: The Gift of Adoption, Inspiring Stories of Families Created Across Continents.
