Haiti child trafficking case is an international problem

Post speaks about personal experiences with the international adoption community. While my wife was in Ethiopia working with children orphaned from AIDS, she ended up staying in a hotel with a bunch of westerners waiting for babies. One even asked my wife if she could have our baby! While I believe most international adoptions happen legally, there are too many cases where unscrupulous natives partnered with ill-intentioned foreigners create chaotic situations for children. Some think taking a child from their home situation is better because of all the riches in America but despite someone’s living conditions, being with family should take priority. Rather than looking at breaking up families (not to say this is what the missionaries in Haiti were intentionally doing), we who have means should spend our efforts helping to build sustainable societies for those affected. Our best intentions can lead to the gravest of consequences for children internationally
