“In all of us there is a hunger, marrow-deep, to know our heritage- to know who we are and where we have come from. Without this enriching knowledge, there is a hollow yearning. No matter what our attainments in life, there is still a vacuum, an emptiness, and the most disquieting loneliness.” Alex Haley
"Whose needs are being met by whom?"
An adoptee's purpose is not to fulfill the needs and desires of adults who want to be parents, or is it?
Adoption brokers have convinced society that adoption is a win-win. They "create families" for anyone with enough cash, by convincing (or worse) vulnerable parents into heroically relinquishing their babies to "more deserving" parents. Children are "saved", birth certificates "amended", and new "parents" have their dream child. The deal is done. "As if" the child was their own.
This unregulated billion-dollar industry of transferring humans through "sealed" and "amended" birth certificates, however, sheds light on the fact that our current adoption system is actually more in the best interest of adults than children.
