Adoption: What You Should Know & The Intersection Between Child Trafficking and International Adoption ask the same question…
‘Has the global man-made market for children exploited mothers, fathers, families, and communities?’
For years, facilitators have denied adoptees access to documents that could lead them back to their families. In defense of the rights of adopted people, a true Ethiopian orphan briefly speaks her mind about adoption. Then, going back in time, the attention shifts from African adoptions (what’s been trending) to the 1954 Evangelical Baby “Swoop” Era, to the 1854 Orphan Train Movement, and finally to the European Child Migration Schemes. Adoption History 101: An Orphan’s Research supports those who have ever felt isolated due to the industry’s privacy and lack of transparency. Taken children–now adults–are critiquing a global man-made market. This orphan’s perspective is meant to inform vulnerable communities against a fierce industry that professes God is on their side. It is only natural for Mother Nature to recover itself. This research is motivated by a Haitian adoptee who died of heart failure after learning that he had been trafficked to France for overseas adoption but was never able to acquire justice due to the public’s love affair with the practice. This short book deconstructs the industry and acknowledges the families left behind.
