I notice perfect moments and encourage you to do so, as well. I am a New Age Libertarian. I study the chakras, practice yoga and ayurveda, and tell stories. My book, The Open-Hearted Way to Open Adoption: Helping Your Child Grow Up Whole — written with my daughter’s birth mom — was recently published by Rowman & Littlefield and is garnering rave reviews."

  1. Behaviorists like Rosemond’s ilk have been around since psychiatry became embedded in our culture in order to profit from and take away our innate understanding and ability for decision making as we looked to outsiders (strangers) for answers to our personal family issues. Back in 70’s, after I gave away my daughter, like many, I lost all confidence, self esteem and became fearful when I had my 2nd daughter and subsequently internalized a lack for any future capability to mother properly.
