50 Years of International Adoption

50 Years of International Adoption

In the past decade, the number of foreign children adopted by Americans has nearly tripled to more than 20,000 a year. Most come from poor and troubled parts of the world, and a life in America offers new hope. But it also means separation from their birth culture. Fifty years of experience with international adoption has led to new approaches in bringing up a multicultural child, but the success of international adoption brings perils, too. The past few years have seen an explosion in adoption groups and companies competing for clients, often over the Internet. Finding Home: Fifty Years of International Adoption explores the pull of adoption across lives and borders.

  1. The plight of our true (as opposed to so-called orphans who had living mothers and fathers) orphans in my country has made me super-aware of adoption issues etc. (In my country, if the parents are dead, then the grandmother, or the aunt etc, takes care of the child, so the child doesn’t usually go to an orphanage.BUT the AIDS crisis has changed all that.Homes led by 15 yr olds are struggling…20 000 Korean children going out per year? That’s terrible. Something IN KOREA needs to be done for these children. Uprooting them like this can’t be the best way forward.
