my husband and i were watching adoption stories on tv last night and he became very upset at the fact that people were going through great expense & half way around the world to adopt children out of their race. he felt as though they were taking away heritage & that the person was simply doing this to feel like they helped out some poor chinese or african kid, & will bring them to the u.s. where everyone will pity them. to a extent i agree, but adopt american kids first . i think the laws in the u.s are more cruel to adopting parents because the birth parents have so many laws that let them change their mind. & to avoid that we go oversees where we can get newborns and once american citizens the parents can never take them back. as for the race, it must be miserable to not have anyone in your family who looks like your or can even comb your hair for that matter. these are just my thoughts and feelings.
