In every domestic adoption the birth parents cannot end their parental rights until some time after the baby has been born. In some cases the birth mother and birth father may be able to end their parental rights as soon as 24 hours after the baby's birth while in other cases it may take up to 6 months or more to end their parental rights. However, until the birth parents rights have been ended they are the parents and, if the child has been placed for adoption, they can refuse to participate in an adoption and ask for the baby to be returned.

China Adoption - Holt International

In 2009 a Tennessee couple made a life-changing decision. As devout Christians, they decided to open their home to an orphaned girl from Ethiopia, whom they were told had been abandoned. They knew enough from fellow adoptive parents to expect that the process would be long and hard, but as they were waiting for their application to go through, something unexpected happened. A number of Ethiopian staff at their adoption agency were arrested for transporting children to a different region of the country where they could claim the children had been abandoned. (Following a glut of adoption cases where children were said to have been abandoned in the capital city of Addis Ababa, the court had temporarily stopped processing “abandonment adoptions” of children from the city, but were still allowing cases from elsewhere in the country.)

Adoptions International, Inc. was founded by an adoption attorney, Jody Hall, who has been a leader in the adoption industry for the past 21 years. Jody is an expert in all immigration and legal aspects of the international adoption process, and is actively involved in each and every adoption case we handle.

THE SMARTWATCH REPORT: Forecasts, adoption trends…

The recount presented here shows, that Russia is not the exceptional outlier it is presented to be. The United States of America is the exceptional outlier. The US, imports approximately half of the children placed for adoption internationally, resulting in 49 fatal abuse cases. The rest of the world imports the other half of the children placed for adoption internationally, resulting in 3 fatal abuse cases.

The literature on fatalities of foreign adopted children, usually focuses on the Russian cases, and tries to seek an explanation for the abuse/neglect in the conditions of Russian orphanages.

Forced Adoption – Punishment without crime

There are other cases that never hit the media or the AP's were not charged with a crime, but kids are dead none the less. There are also quite a few internationally adopted children who are "missing" and none of the authorities (State or Federal) seem to know or care where they are. The goal of the system is to get them adopted and move on. Case closed.
