Publisher’s Summary

Has the global manmade market for children exploited mothers, fathers, families, and communities? Gain a bird’s-eye view of the hidden side of the practice here.

How would you like to be given a new identity to live by and then removed from your sisters and brothers—never to be legally permitted to contact them again—even upon your deathbed? This is just one of many examples of red tape adoptees are forced to contend with because of adoption. This research book has been divided into four short, easy-to-understand sections, revealing the making of the current child welfare system throughout time: starting in Europe (referred to as the European Child Migration Schemes), then spreading to America (known as the Orphan Train Movement), into Asia (called the Evangelical Baby Swoop Era), to what’s trending today: Africa.

The pioneers who built and profited from the industry continue to deny adoptees access to documents that could lead them back to their families. This book protects you against adoption profiteers and traffickers who profess God is on their side. It summarizes the history and expansion of the adoption industry, focusing on its roots and consequences kept from public awareness.

What Do Korean Adoptees Say About Adoption Now?

The "Uknown" Culture Club: Korean Adoptees, Then and Now, compiled by the Vance Twins

Monte Haines and Adam Crapser’s Adoption Story compiled by the Vance Twins

This collection, compiled by Korean adoptees, serves as a tribute to transracially adopted people sent all over the world.

It has been hailed to be the first book to give Korean adoptees the opportunity to speak freely since the pioneering of intercountry adoption after the Korean War.

If you were adopted, you are not alone. These stories validate the experiences of all those who have been ridiculed or outright abused but have found the will to survive, thrive, and share their tale.

Adopted people all over the world are reclaiming the right to truth and access to birth documents.

This book is a living testament on why previous “orphans” do not endorse the profitable Evangelical Orphan Movement.

Those who work in the human rights field, whistleblowers, or adopted, will see the value of this book.

These are real stories from individuals no longer serving the adoption pioneers’ fanciful wishes and advertising campaigns.

Read this book before you pay adoption agency fees. These courageous narratives could save you tens of thousands of dollars or prevent you from obtaining a child unethically.

Be the first to read these narratives and join the ever-expanding Adoption Truth and Transparency Worldwide Network.

It’s never too late to walk in awareness!

What are Adopted People and Families Separated Saying About Adoption Now?

Adoptionland: From Orphans to Activists

Adoptionland: From Orphan to Activist

This anthology begins with personal accounts and then shifts to a bird’s eye view on adoption from domestic, intercountry and transracial adoptees who are now adoptee rights activists. Along with adopted people, this collection also includes the voices of mothers and a father from the Baby Scoop Era, a modern-day mother who almost lost her child to adoption, and ends with the experience of an adoption investigator from Against Child Trafficking.

These stories are usually abandoned by the very industry that professes to work for the “best interest of children,” “child protection,” and for families. However, according to adopted people who were scattered across nations as children, these represent typical human rights issues that have been ignored for too long.

For many years, adopted people have just dealt with such matters alone, not knowing that all of us—as a community—have a great deal in common.
