What is the ‘adoption community’??

Question by Possum: What is the ‘adoption community’??
I am an adoptee.
I have lived adoption my entire life.
I am in communication with many on all sides of adoption – on a frequent basis.

Am I not part of the ‘adoption community’ – or are adoptees that are vocal and hope for best parenting practices for all adoptees – excluded from this secret club???

And is all research which implies that their are issues within current adoption practices considered void and null – because they perhaps don’t fit in with the adoption agency line??

Just curious really.

Oh sweetie, you don’t want to be a part of that club. I tried to get in once, but then I realized that the ONLY people in that club are those who feel the need to make themselves sound important and knowledgeable because they’ve spent significant amounts of time talking to others who have purchased children in order to meet their own wants.

ETA: You know what comes to mind when I hear the phrase “adoption community”? The Men’s Club in the Stepford Wives (note: I’ve only read the book, so I don’t know what the movie is like…hope everyone knows what I’m talking about).
