    Adoption deregulation

    For those against deregulation, should we deregulate the adoption industry?

    Just want to know pro or con?

    It seems like a ridiculously hard practice to try to adopt, particularly American kids (if you want really young kids). I've known people that went foreign to adopt because the standards are so high.

    But on the other hand, you don't want kids being adopted by POS. The problem is, its impossible to really know on paper, or in interviews, what type of people the people are. And I think it can lead towards being judgemental and stereotypical.

    I know, not really giving an answer here. You don't want kids being adopted and abused or used as slave, or what not, but the process can make you lose good potential parents

    Yes, they need to streamline the adoption process, and make the process less costly so more middle class families can adopt, and the 3,000,000 kids waiting to be adopted can find loving homes.

    how many of those kids are no longer infants? That's the problem, people want to adopt infants, and there are tons of kids that are older that people dont' want to adopt. is the cause really too strict regulation, or too old of kids? I'm sure a mix of both

    Yea I feel the same. Have seen so many kids who wind up in foster/adoption homes for a super long time waiting as the process proceeds. One woman and her husband I worked with decades ago was actually turned down because she had written a bad check or something years prior and it ruined her credit temporarily. In some ways, it often appears many of these orgs only want wealthy or at least well off people to adopt.

    No, the adoption process is fine, they need to spend a ton of money on improving the quality of life for those children who will not end up being adopted.

    That is where the real problem is.

    When these kids are released from state control they should be fully prepared to deal with life as if they were raised by caring parents.

    Instead all we hear are the horror stories about what life is or was like for them during the process.

    That needs to change drastically.

    Exclamation

    As it concerns same-sex parental adoptions, virtually every major large organization in the United States with experts on adoption fully supports the adoption of children by Gay and Lesbian parents. It is most gratifying to know that they can see the true value in such adoptions and not place personal prejudices in the way to cloud their views. This is a short and concise report that everyone should read who may have questions about same-sex parenting.

    The Experts Speak on Adoption ? Unmarried Equality

    "Here’s what some well-respected experts are saying about adoption and marital status:

    "Child Welfare League of America:

    “Applicants should be assessed on the basis of their abilities to successfully parent a child needing family membership and not on their race, ethnicity or culture, income, age, marital status, religion, appearance, differing lifestyles, or sexual orientation. Further, applicants for adoption should be accepted “on the basis of an individual assessment of their capacity to understand and meet the needs of a particular available child at the point of adoption and in the future.” Read more on this policy."
