“The Real Problem of Intercountry Adoption”
Our friends at National Council for Adoption publish a monthly newsletter, The Adoption Advocate. This month’s newsletter contains an essay by law professor, Paulo Barrozo, on the human rights of unparented children. The essay takes a look at global adoption narratives, philosophy, and social thought, he posits that increasing intercountry adoptions would provide more children with the dignity and love they deserve.
We encourage you to find some time over the next day or two to read Mr. Barrozo’s article. It is a timely message as we enter our Season of Hope when we rally to partner together to care for these vulnerable children.
Mr. Barrozo states,
“The predicament of unparented children around the world is the greatest humanitarian and human rights crisis of our time. The legal institute of adoption is a marvelous gift to humanity, for it is the only permanent solution to this crisis. And intercountry adoption is an essential component of this solution.”
