<![endif]-->The US International Adoption system is broken. Abuses are rampant, already high fees are escalating and corruption is commonplace. In recent years many sending countries have closed due to disclosure of baby selling and abuses of the process. Many more are likely to close if their equally corrupt processes are exposed. Hague contains much needed consumer protection. It offers a federal framework and unity of law for the state licensed agencies. But it has missed its mark on the core purpose of Hague – elimination of corruption in the foreign process and protection of basic human rights of children.
