Made rebloggable by request:Look this isn’t the reason why my parents are adpoting, my parents want to help a child, so they are going to adopt and take a child from the adoption system and into a loving home, When i wrote this it was a general idea thing that i said, there are a whole host of other reasons as to why my parents are adopting.
OH. Well, congratulations then. Your parents are such great people for rescuing a child from the system.
I don’t have the energy to write out a long explanation as to why supporting a corrupt adoption system is something I can’t applaud, so I’m just gonna leave a few links here that will hopefully speak for themselves. Also, I meant it when I said fuck it. Because fuck it.
According to Cornell University, about 68% of all child protective cases “do not involve child maltreatment.” The largest percentage of CPS/DSS cases are for “deprivation of necessities” due to poverty. So, if the natural parents were given the incredible incentives and services listed above that are provided to the adoptive parents, wouldn’t it stand to reason that the causes for removing children in the first place would be eliminated? How many less children would enter foster care in the first place? The child protective budget would be reduced from $12 billion to around $4 billion. Granted, tens of thousands of social workers, administrators, lawyers, juvenile court personnel, therapists, and foster parents would be out of business, but we would have safe, healthy, intact families, which are the foundation of any society.CPS profits from every child that they can first, terminate Parental rights, and then place the child for adoption.
We need to begin with how adoption policies and practices relative to adoptee rights morphed from being deemed “sacred” to being deep-sixed to shield private adoption agencies from accountability and liability. In the process, what was “best for the child” became severely tainted by the business of adoption. And a business it is! A multi-billion dollar annual business!
