International Adoption !
Transcript of International Adoption !
Against int'l adoption: "It's important, wherever possible, for a child to be in their country of origin, to be with their culture, their language, and also extended family," said Lucy Handford.
International adoptees may have hidden mental problems. The most frequent illnesses are reactive attachment disorder and sensory integration dysfunction, both of which often appear in children who have been institutionalized most of their lives in orphanages, where they received little attention or affection. In favor of int'l adoption: There are lots of children – both boys and girls, infants and older kids, healthy and special needs children – available for adoption from a wide array of countries.
When children experience natural disaster in their own country and are left orphans, they need a safe place to call home where they can grow up healthily. http://tinyurl.com/ncruqv
