Re: “Not a Pretty Picture

Lillie, I think the answer to your question lies in the fact that in the US adoption is largely a private industry worth some $ 4 billion each year governed by varying laws from state to state. It doesn't help that where the Federal government is involved tax incentives to promote adoption are the order of the day... Ad to that the fact that adoption is a practice that has its origins in shame and stigma--the shame and stigma of the young unmarried mother pressured to surrender her newborn child and told by doing so she will have a second chance to do it right... And the shame and stigma of the childless couple seeking to appear normal and fruitful through the alchemy of adoption. It's NOT a pretty picture -mk
