TACTICS of the POWERS that rule the ADOPTION INDUSTRYWed, 2008-02-06 12:26 — Hilary
It is not easy to force a country giving up its children for adoption. It needs perseverance, bribes (sorry: aid projects), some legal advice to change the laws. And it needs to maintain that country's image of not being able to look after their children, of not being a place where people grow up save.
Did Hilary dare call aid projects bribes?
Perhaps she was slightly wrong. Bribes is not always the right word. Project aid is simply the price to be paid for children. This is what the US report on Vietnamese adoptions says:
According to DIA, orphanages are required to refer one child for foreign adoption for every x dollars donated by the ASP. Thus, if the ASP funds a $10,000 project and the per-child donation is set at $1000 per child, then the orphanage would be required to refer 10 children for intercountry adoption to the ASP. Should the orphanage not have 10 children who are qualified for intercountry adoption, then, according to DIA, the orphanage director is required to find the additional children to complete his side of the agreement.
Could we please get US reports on Haiti and Ethiopia too? Because over there foreign adoption agencies build their own orphanages to secure their marketshare.
