Ever wondered what it’s like to be adopted? Get a global look here:
This website was motivated by an anthology that brought together the voices of those of us adopted domestically, transracially and overseas. Since the building of the adoption practice by a private network of Catholic, Protestant and Evangelical churches, the movement of children has expanded worldwide and at epidemic momentum to now a routine practice benefitting the elite and ousting and denying the existence of others. The global investigative reports, journalistic newspaper articles, and commentary here are real behind the scenes look at the market, and they have been collected
by adopted people, for adopted people.
Adoptionland 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. 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.
