Playing International Adoption Problems: An Adoptee Interview

Uploaded on Feb 27, 2011
In this eye opening interview, author Peter Dodds who was adopted from an orphanage in Germany, describes harm caused when children are uprooted from their native countries and cultures.
Dodds' opinion includes his POV on the rights of children, (as outlined by the UNCRC), forced adoption, an adoptee's unwillingness to bond to his APs, and how infrequently these critical topics and issues are addressed by the pro ICA community.
In terms of finding "alternative solutions" for children in-care, Dodds responds, "the solution is already in place". Measures to improve domestic care ought to come from improved domestic champaigns, supported by large popular charities, like World Vision, and United Nation's Children's Fund.
