Free Information Before You Pay the $30,000 Adoption Cost for Your Child:

  • Adopted children are not asked if they want to leave their families, country of origin, and communities.
  • Child finders (the middleman) are paid salaries to find the perfect child for the paying consumer.
  • Many children are stolen or kidnapped for overseas adoption.  Children are not commodities.
  • Many vulnerable poor parents are misled into relinquishing by adoption profiteers.
  • Paperwork is modified and falsified in order for the adoption to go through.
  • International adoption costs $40,000 to 60,000.  Supporting a mother and her child in Africa costs only $15 a month,
  • Adoptees are at a much higher risk of committing suicide.
  • 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 own adoptions because they are suspicious of trafficking.
  • Most ‘orphans‘ come from single-parent families. They just need a little help to stay together. Families need support.
