Does it bother?

Does it bother anyone that Angelina Jolie adopts children from other countries when there are plenty of kids and babies in the US that need a good home?

  • Our entire adoption system bothers me ~ starting with the fact that it's illegal to sell a child, but it costs more to 'buy' one than to raise one in many cases. I feel sorry for the children sitting around trapped in a system that is based on profit over what is best for the children.

    As for what others do, if they adopt babies from anywhere and treat them well, I don't have a problem with it. All children deserve a home and to be loved.

  • Nope. Adoption equals a child going to someone who loves them and plans to care for them. Doesn't matter where the child is. All Children in the World deserve that.

  • American children are no more deserving than a child from another country,but with all the other stars that adopt in other countries do u feel that maybe it's a fad?U really didnt hear bout that sorta thing till she did it. "

    If anyone adopts because of a fad, that's kinda sad. (haha, that ryhmes!), But I doubt most do it because it's trendy.

  • I don't really understand the adoption system. Someone needs to adopt those kids.

  • Nope. I care about all children equally. It's one less child that will grow up without parents, and it doesn't matter to me what country they come from. American babies are not more deserving or important than babies in other countries.
