Goodbye Hypervigilance is a true story about my experience realizing how adoption trauma had put me on high alert my entire life. My need to control things was catastrophic. Luckily, I have an adoptee competent therapist who helped me identify this old coping mechanism. My hope for Goodbye Hypervigilance is that it will help adoptees name this feeling if it is their experience, help adoptee therapists guide their clients and help adoptive parents talk with their adoptive children about this common issue in adoptees.
