At the convention, few knew Dohle's story. But the passion with which he spoke against trafficking in the name of inter-country adoptions and how poor single unwed mothers and parents were being cheated by traffickers expressed the intense thoughts of an adoptee. "The huge amount of money involved in inter-country adoptions is leading to trafficking and exploitation of both the parents and the child,'' Dohle added. Dohle is now part of an informal network helping adoptees to trace their biological parents in search for answers to questions which haunt them everyday.
The convenor of Campaign Against Child Trafficking (CACT), Raaj Mangal Prasad, asserted, "There is no comprehensive law to deal with the issue of adoption. This allows vested interests to play a role.''
The absence of a single representative from the Central Adoption Resource Agency a central authority set up to look into all adoption related matters at the national convention was seen by NGOs and activists as an indicator of the seriousness with which the government was dealing with the issue.
