Slide text

Slide one: Savior complex

When someone believes that the act of adopting a child is heroic and, therefore, the adoptive parent is a hero that should be praised for their "good deed" of adopting.

Slide two: Realities

Children don't usually need to be "rescued" or "saved" through adoption. Rather, adoption is about creating a family and giving a child permanent love.
