I was reading questions last night regarding this and was shocked at how many women call international adopters selfish! How is giving any child a home selfish? HAve you looked up for instance Russian orphanages? They are in crisis! hundreds of toddlers sharing rooms packed full of beds. Drinking potato water instead of formula because there is not enough funding! Millions of children developing learning disabilities and RAD due to no parental interaction. 1 nanny to every 7 kids in the Better situations. These kids dont even get baths. They are wiped down in a matter of a minute. No playing in the tub! Kids beating each other and stealing each others food because there isn't enough to go around. Of course these are children in America that need homes but are international children less deserving? GAH! I am totally disgusted by these comments. How can a mom call an adopter selfish?Answer Question

I think adopting from another country is stupid and should not be allowed! There are plenty of children here in the US that need homes and people need to stop bringing other countries children over here! So be disgusted with my answer I am disgusted and annoyed with people who adopt from other countries!

We are looking into adopting right now we are in the plans of building a house so we want to get that finalized before we adopt to make sure the child is not brought into the craziness of building and moving since they probably have had some kind of crazy life to begin with. I want the child to feel as comfortable as they can when they come into our home.
