Re-Homing of Adopted Children – These Aren’t Pets, Damnit!
September 11, 2013 2 Comments
It’s a long read, but I consider it highly educational, if somewhat disturbing.
This article series describes conditions in the United States. I live in Norway, and though I don’t have an actual study to support it, my gut feeling is that the practice of re-homing adopted children does not and can not exist here, at least not at the same relative magnitude as in USA. I do however know that even here, a disturbing number of adoptions are done by people who are either not qualified, or do not have the required motivation and attitude to care for or even love a child not born into the family, more often than not with special needs and considerable emotional and psychological baggage.
