Author: Adoption Truth & Transparency
Publisher: Adoption Truth & Transparency
This book reveals the rare and often silenced voices hidden inside the backstreets of international adoption. The research offers the data you need to know in order to make an informed decision before paying the non-refundable fees to adopt a child. The main movements of children are organized into four sections and referred to as Orphan Ships (Europe), Orphan Trains (America), Orphan Planes (Asia), and Orphan Trafficking (Africa). Learn how the child movement began, spread, and why some domestic and international adult-adoptees are against the practice today. Know more about the history and the industry than the professionals in the field. Adoption: What You Should Know might convince you to think twice before transferring funds to the adoption facilitator—and being cautious could be a good thing! The information inside could save you up to $75,000 in private hidden fees. This book is on its way to protect local, global, indigenous, and even the most wealthy families among us. Sometimes we need to scrutinize agencies—instead of immediately trusting them. It's when we do so that we can save ourselves a lot of the heartache of potentially adopting a child that has a living family or was even kidnapped by adoption traffickers. Some overseas adult adoptees, like the author, were unknowingly at risk of being deported to a birth nation they knew nothing about. Others have been deported as adults! The adoption industry is changing rapidly from country to country: Russia and Ethiopia, the two most popular countries to adopt from, closed their doors within the last decade. Due to adoption scams, Europe has also made some decisions based on private findings. This book gives you a birdseye's view on the practice, beginning from Europe’s mass child movements of the 1600s to today’s child trafficking methods that have taken place in Africa and Asia. It’s up to responsible considerate human beings (all of us) to decide if we want to listen and consider the voices of “the other side” in the effort to preserve families. Young adoptive parent applicants of today should be informed of all sides of the issue—not just exposed to agency advertising campaigns, which avoid some of the pitfalls of the practice. Because of social media, the culture of adoption is rapidly changing. According to a 2019 preliminary poll, 100% of all adult adoptee respondents agreed with the statement that they should have a right to look for their birth family if they so wish. Permanently severing children from their family ties should be the last resort. Instead, processing children to foreign territories has become expedited and for a profit. Now that it's been around four hundred years since the movement was built on draconian attitudes and antiquated beliefs, isn't it time to take the magnifying glass and inspect the entities that have made the most money from the movement? The unconventional views revealed inside this book have been called mind-blowing by fellow adoptee-rights activists. A rare whistleblowing history book determined to protect United States citizens and vulnerable third-world nations against adoption scams and the profitable business of falsely advertising children from living families as if "orphaned." The author invited a few guest adoptees and mothers-of-loss to contribute but had no say on what they wrote. Some guests are sad, devastated, and might sound negative, but their stories are worth being read to protect families and individuals from unnecessary separations. *NOTE: The textbook version is titled: Adoption History 101: An Orphan's Research
