I think most aparents want to adopt ethically, but I also know that some are willing to overlook certain red flags during the adoption process because they desperately want to adopt. What would make you as a potential adoptive parent walk away from an adoption situation? What would cause you to stand up to an agency and tell them that a certain practice of theirs was unacceptable? If you read several bad reviews about an agency, what would you do? What if you found an on-line article that indicated the agency had violated ethical procedures in the past? Or, what if you read on Cafemom that a particular agency was considered unethical? Would you ignore it, or do more research on the agency? What if you discovered the pregnant women wanted to parent, but did not know how and where to get support?
What would it take to convince you to change course?

As for not answering the question, I asked about walking away from an adoption situation. If you have not walked into an agency, there IS probably no situation. But, I am asking in general about what red flags you might notice that would cause one to walk away from either an agency, whether money has been invested or not.
Actually, that is not true. In 2009 there are often adoption opportunities that you sign up for that particular situation in that particular agency. You only sign with the agency when there is a situation you are interested in.
