Abstract

Article explores the issue of US-born children being adopted out of the country while thousands of Americans vie for and adopt children transnationally. Author asks many questions about the ethics and morality of this practice of redistribution of children that violates the intent of the Hague convention to keep international as a last resort and find homes within the child's homeland first.
