  • Adopted children are not asked if they want to leave their families, country of origin, and communities.
  • Child finders (the middle-man) 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.
"I thought this was an awesome book about adoptees. They cover every aspect from international adoption to the orphan trains in the late 1800s and early 1900s and even talk about the first man to do an international adoption in a shocking as it may seem it is true it was Jim Jones from the mass suicide in Ghana. I even enjoyed the 10 questions at the end with Janine the author. I thought that was a great addition to an already great book. I highly recommend this, My husband was adopted, and although his situation wasn’t necessarily portrayed in this book it was still enjoyable to read. I can’t recommend it enough."

About the Book: This little book proves that we are an assorted population with varying backgrounds, and we should not be reduced to the label of anti-this or anti-that when we ask questions—questions that make the industry uncomfortable. Rather, we should be given the right to ask questions about our background and even gain access to our adoption documents when we inquire. We have the right to ask questions—even if it makes adoption agencies uncomfortable. We should have the right to know if we have blood-related sisters and brothers, aunts, or uncles. None of us should have to go to our graves without having the opportunity to develop friendships with our next-of-kin—if we so wish. This book, containing excerpts from Janine's Adoption Books for Adults collection, is completely biased on the rights of adopted people and void of influence from adoption authorities.
