Haiti: The question now is, are they really Orphans?

Friday, January 22, 2010

With calls for international adoption processes to be sped up, some are questioning whether taking supposedly unwanted children away from their homeland, even in extreme or impoverished conditions, is the right solution.

"Orphanages are clearing houses in Haiti. As soon as the children enter the home, they are signed up to an international adoption agency. This means that the parents, if they are alive and they want them back, cannot get them back."  Stated Roelie Post, of Against Child Trafficking.

A very very frightening thought for any parent ……
