Publisher's summary

Adoption: What You Should Know has been divided into five sections, revealing the making of the global overseas child welfare system throughout time, starting in Europe, America, South Korea (Asia), and today, finally, in Africa. Learn how religious folks, like Harry Holt (1954), spearheaded overseas adoption programs that have exploded into a worldwide in-demand phenomenon but blatantly ignore inherent and natural human rights (a.k.a. God's laws) for patriarchal and evangelical dreams and continue to violate the correct interpretation of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).

Most of us have heard the positive side of international adoption in the United States. Clips of children being sent into the arms of loving Americans can be found all over the internet. But did you know that in other parts of the world, the indigenous and less fortunate communities view overseas adoption as a violation of their natural, inherent, and God-given rights to family and community? Gain a bird's-eye view of the hidden side of the practice here.
