Though it reflects the individuals at the core of the adoption process it doesn't reflect the nature of the relationships or the process of adoption.
I find myself waking in the early hours with my mind ruminating on the the challenges faced by all the players in adoption. Increasingly my mind sticks on the position and status of the members of the triangle.
In part this is highlighted by my own children moving into adulthood but also informed by my own professional and personal experiences.
The twitter adoption community feeds and threads are full of comments about challenges faced, mainly anonymous, and often aimed at Social Workers, Local Authorities, policy and government.
I'd do the same but they know who I am. It all points to the unseen member of the triangle
I would propose that we re draw the adoption triangle and reflect the status of the parties and players.
We could argue about the position and size of my infographic bubbles. But for many of the players this is how it feels.
What scares me is if I was to have drawn this 50 years ago I'm not sure it would be any different.
