To answer the discussion question, perhaps parents should start by not abandoning their children at birth. However, the parents in the video are clearly not fit to raise children, so all four children should have been adopted.

horrific

clearly this was meant to be mortifying - and it was. the lack of sensitivity to their own flesh and blood - even a stranger - is beyond cruel. I was adopted and I have adopted children so this really hits home. Heritage DNA identity and belonging are primary to self esteem confidence mental and emotional stability. This mini episode was worse than anything Saturday Night Live could ever contrive! What exactly was the point?

Both an overstatement and understatement

Rejection can actually become deadly for both but primarily for the child. This kid was practically washed out of the parents memory. The rejected child is either in a state of shock or blended well into his new life so didn't show any signs of damage. Having been rejected by my family in more subtle ways over a longer period of time showed up in 4 serious attempts at suicide because it seemed I didn't fit in anywhere.
