  • Families do not do well separated–especially parents separated from their children. Families thrive when they stay together.
  • Many inter-country adoptees want to investigate their adoptions because they are suspicious of trafficking.
  • Most children come from poor single-parent families. They just need help to stay together. Families need support. You do not want to be a part of adoption trafficking.
