Everybody in this world deserves a secure base. This is a person/people that you can depend on to meet your needs. This is an environment that you can go to, to feel safe. At the end of the day, we all want to come home to the people that we love & the comfort of our home. That is the foundation of attachment.
For the children who have suffered the loss of their parents (through abandonment, relinquishment, or death), their individual needs may look very different depending on the age at which the loss occurred, their developmental level, & environmental factors. In their very young lives, they have already gone through what most adults can't even fathom. They may not know it, but they need a secure base more than most. However, it will now take more patience & understanding to figure out where their mindset is, what their needs are, & the best approach to meeting those needs.
