What’s Wrong with Selling Your Baby for an IPhone?

truth about the adoption industry profits

Why does the adoption middle man sanctify the baby trade? What magic fairy dust does an adoption agency or facilitator or lawyer have that makes it morally acceptable? Why is it OK to give a child away, to relinquish your flesh and blood, to place a child, to abandon a child, to make an adoption plan for a child, to give the “gift” of a child, but not just openly sell the privilege to parenting? read more…

They paid more, they fought more, they lied more, they cheated more, they played a dirtier game from the beginning. I am so sad for Veronica; having to leave her family, her home, with no one in power looking out for her best interest, her right to be with her family. She is four years old; she will remember. read more…
