"My wish is that children be treated as people, and not as property; that their rights as human beings on the planet, to food, shelter, education, and health, be taken seriously."
"He who can reach a child's heart can reach the world's heart."
"Somehow destiny comes into play. These children end up with you and you end up with them. It's something quite magical."
As quoted from the book "Adoption Is Another Word for Love"

Adoption Scams - Ethical Adoption
Unethical practices and adoption scams do not only happen to adoptive parents. Expectant mothers, birth parents, adoptees and adoption professionals are also at risk. The key to an ethical and positive adoption journey is to educate yourself, know who you are working with and thoroughly research your options and the laws. In order for a con to be successful, often times the con will hide under the cloak of legitimate professionals. Or simply not hide at all.
