Exploring International Adoption’s Narrative: Deciphering the Link Between ‘Ethical’ and ‘Legal’ Adoption

Most believe International Adoption is ethical and legal as a whole. This strategic choice of words aims to reinforce the industry’s commitment to both legality and ethical considerations. By delving into the intricacies of this narrative, we uncover how this framework influences our perception of intercountry adoptions despite violating children’s rights to their identity. International adoption should not be a business to commodity children; the Adoption Profiteers, however, are in the business of commodifying children. It is a system that focuses on getting the parent to relinquish their rights, labels the child as an ‘orphan’ or ‘abandoned’, and allows for the transfer of children. The adoption profiteers carefully crafted this system as a legal adoption as a money exchange for the adoption services, so it does not appear the paying customer is buying a child but rather paying for the service fees.  Paying the adoption agency service fees makes the adoption legal and ethical despite the child’s rights being violated.

Shall we continue the business of adoption for 70+ more decades despite human rights violations?

Understanding the broader adoption industry dynamics is crucial. By comprehending this intricate balance, expectant parents and prospective adopters can make well-informed decisions that align with their values and aspirations.
