It’s Time to Reassess Adoption

To whom it may concern:

Please consider reassessing the practice of adoption.

For every family created by adoption, another family is forever torn

For every baby sent overseas today, his/her identity is forever altered thereafter.

Against Child Trafficking specifically, addresses child trafficking. Processing children reap the highest payouts, sometimes surpassing $60 – $70,000 per child. All other trafficking focuses on the demand for adults or teenagers to fill the work (or slave labor), sex (or prostitution rings) and organ (typically from prisons) demand.  

Against child trafficking examines the demand for children. Adoption agencies have bought and sold children under the guise of charity.

Please consider helping us protect children from this market.

Global mothers-of-loss now worry that adoption is not a child protection measures—like they had been told by adoption agencies—but rather inflicts trauma on families (mothers, fathers, families, children).

The adoption is a multi-billion dollar industry. Facilitators have exploited inexperienced mothers all over the world—mothers who were never told of their rights. These mothers are still grieving the loss of their children.

Adult adopted people who speak out need protection against these agencies.

What is the best way to protect children from this self-monitored and self-policing making industry? The distribution of educational materials that allow for all voices to be heard—not just those who are “approved” by the industry “experts”.

Adoption agencies will not allow the severed (and informed) family’s point of view to be heard within their scheme.

Our mission is to reunite the families left behind with their taken children and provide peer or professional support for broken families.

 There is still a desperate need for a moratorium to be placed on the practice before creating more separations.

Aware transracially adopted people feel as if they have been colonized; some compare adoption to slavery—the same as being “owned.” This is painful as there is no way to find back one’s family—not even when the adopted person is an elder.

Please support our work to reunite families of missing children—now transracially adopted adults—sent overseas to fill the lucrative industry demand.
