With the horrible conditions in Haiti, you see a lot of questions lately about adopting from there and other 3rd world countries as a form of charity. Do you really think this is the best way to help?
I feel like the reason why you should adopt, whether it is from the US or overseas should be first and foremost, that you want to be a parent or be a parent again. Parenting is an enormous responsibility and international adoptive parenting even more so.
IF you were already thinking of adopting, then it is fantastic. But if adoption wasnt already in your heart, I think the better way to support these poor people are monetary donations to reputable agencies.

I don't see how taking a child from it's home land, or taking a countries children at a time of great tragedy is charitable.
