Need to protect vulnerable families from the crisis of adoption trafficking? This investigational look is crucial.Has the global push for adoption exploited mothers worldwide? Adoption History 101 summarizes the inception and expansion of the adoption industry, focusing on its roots and consequences kept from public awareness. For years, facilitators have denied adoptees access to documents that could lead them back to their families. In defense of the rights of adopted people, a true Ethiopian orphan briefly speaks her mind about adoption. Then, going back in time, the attention shifts from African adoptions (what's been trending) to the 1954 Evangelical Baby "Swoop" Era, to the 1854 Orphan Train Movement, and finally to the European Child Migration Schemes. This research supports those who have ever felt isolated due to the industry's privacy and lack of transparency. Taken children-now adults-are critiquing a global human-made market. This orphan's perspective is meant to inform vulnerable communities against a fierce industry that professes God is on their side. It is only natural for Mother-Nature to recover itself. This research is motivated by a Haitian adoptee who died of heart failure after learning that he had been trafficked to France for overseas adoption but was never able to acquire justice due to the public's love affair with the practice. This short book deconstructs the industry and acknowledges the families left behind. The first history book to point out the crisis of adoption trafficking.

Has the global push for adoption exploited mothers worldwide? Adoption History 101 summarizes the inception and expansion of the adoption industry, focusing on its roots and consequences kept from public awareness. For years, adoption agencies have denied adult adoptees access to documents that could lead them back to their families. In defense of the rights of adopted people, a true Ethiopian orphan briefly speaks her mind about adoption. Then, going back in time, the attention shifts from African adoptions (what's trending now), to the 1954 Evangelical Baby "Swoop" Era, to the 1854 Orphan Train Movement, and finally to the European Child Migration Schemes. This research supports those who have ever felt isolated due to the industry's privacy and lack of transparency.Taken children--now adults--are critiquing a global man-made market. This "orphan's" perspective is meant to inform vulnerable communities against a fierce industry that professes God is on their side. It is only natural for Mother-Nature to recover itself.This research is motivated by a Haitian adoptee who died of heart failure in his early thirties after learning that he had been trafficked to France for international adoption but was never able to acquire justice due to the public's love affair with the practice. This short book definitely does not cover the entire global adoption practice, but it does give more information than what has been publically accessible in the past. It also deconstructs the industry and acknowledges the families left behind--something never done before by the lobbyists. International and domestic adoptees from all over the world have banned together for "truth and transparency." This is the first history book to discuss the crisis of adoption trafficking "by the people, of the people, and for the people."

In this contemporary tale detailing a two-week trip that explores intercountry adoption from South Korea, twin sisters naively travel to their birth city of Seoul in search of their Korean family. Little incidents along the way serve as a catalyst, leading them into a worldwide modern-day adoptee-rights movement seeking truth and transparency. The intent of this book is to inspire and uplift anyone who has been removed from their birth family to know that there is a community of like-minded individuals who've experienced the same circumstances.

This book covers adoption today, yesterday, and around the world, giving voice to those who experienced the orphan ships, planes, trains, and even adoption trafficking, ultimately unveiling the industry's tricks of the trade. "Imagine, you're about to have a little one. The love that you have for that little one. Then imagine somebody outside of your family you don't even know, making claims of your little one. They don't like the way you live. They're going to take your little one by force. Imagine what the loss is. When this is not just your family but your entire community--this is its children."

Has the global man-made market for children exploited mothers, fathers, families, and communities? Gain a bird's-eye view of the hidden side of the practice here. 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 against their natural, inherent, and God-given rights to family and community? How would you like to be given a new identity to live by and then removed from your sisters and brothers--never legally permitted to contact them again--even upon your deathbed? Adoption laws consist of many governmental and religious red tape adoptees are forced to contend even into their elder years with because of the fierce advertising campaigning of adoption agencies to convince the public to fall in love with their activities. This research book has been divided into four short, easy-to-read sections, revealing the making of the current child welfare system throughout time: starting in Europe (referred to as the European Child Migration Schemes); then spreading to America (known as the Orphan Train Movement); into Asia (called the Evangelical Baby "Swoop" Era), to what's trending today: Africa. The pioneers who built and profited from the industry continue to deny adoptees access to documents that could lead them back to their families. This book protects you against adoption profiteers and traffickers who profess God is on their side. It summarizes the inception and expansion of the adoption industry, focusing on its roots and consequences kept from public awareness. Discover the history of adoption from another angle--a view adoption agencies will never tell you. The findings have been called mind-blowing! Inspired by a Haitian adoptee who died of heart failure after learning that he had been trafficked to France for overseas adoption but was never able to acquire justice due to the public's love affair with the practice. The author co-founded Adoption Truth & Transparency Worldwide Information Network (ATTWIN), an adoptee-led forum entirely rooted in equal rights for adoptees. ATTWIN refuses to accept any funding from the lobbying efforts of profitable multi-million dollar adoption agencies. The cofounders are adopted people and are affiliated politically as "Independents." This book is NOT recommended for adoption profiteers, anti-abortion fundamentalists, evangelicals, or individuals against equal rights for adult adoptees. ​​​​ *For universities and institutions, this book is titled Adoption History: An Adoptee's Research into Child Trafficking and is available in hardcover

Do adoptions provide children for families or families for children? This book analyzes the complex interactions between adopters and adoptees using historical and current data. Who are the preferred parents and children, both domestically and internationally? How do the types of adoptions-domestic adoptions, private and public through the foster care system, and intercountry adoptions-differ? Domestic trends include a shift to open adoptions and a notable increase in "hard to place", foster care adoptions-typically older, siblings, minorities, with physical, educational, or emotional challenges. Adoptive parents are increasingly all ages (including grandparents); all types of marriages (single, married and same-sex couples); all income levels, with subsidized adoptions for children who would otherwise remain in foster or institutional care. Intercountry adoptions have followed waves, pushed by wars and political or economic crises in the sending country, and pulled by the increasing demand from the U. S. Currently there is a decrease in intercountry adoptions from Asia and Eastern Europe with a possible fifth wave from Africa with the greatest number from Ethiopia. This is a resource for family sociologists, demographers, social workers, advocates for children and adoptive parents, as well as those who are interested in the continuing research in adoptions.
