Enhancing Attachment by Val Free (Heartsent''s Director)

A Bird's Eye View Reprinted from the Families With Children From China Newsletter 1997.
by Val Free (Director, Heartsent Adoptions, Inc. and adoptive mom)
This has been her nickname for a long time, very soon after she joined our family in 1992, after spending almost five years in a Chinese orphanage. The name conjures many things that fit for Li: the bird who is hypervigilant, ever-aware of potential harm and quick to take flight in times of apparent danger, the bird who can soar and sing when life is happy, and the bird who has the "eye", or perspective that sometimes others don't have. In her case, Li's broader perspective includes an early life in the orphanage, where children were crowded together amidst deafeningly loud voices that echoed in the huge rooms, where it was cold, where there were quick and startling reprimands followed by a swat with a bamboo pole, and where there were small bowls of watery soup that left her continually hungry. She survived.
In the Spring/Summer FCC Newsletter, my husband, Dick, wrote about Li in an article he entitled "The Gift of Love". He wrote about his love for her, and about our family's journey together in those first few years of her joining us. Here I will offer a "bird's eye view", or the rest of the story. Li has her own perspective of how those early experiences shaped her, how she came to join us, and how she has managed to turn into a beautiful swan in this, her ninth year. Hopefully someday she can write about her perspective, offering all of us a firsthand glimpse into the orphanage experience in China. As her adoptive mother, I have been at her side as she has struggled to make sense of life and learn a whole new set of values.
