I don't know if there exists such thing as an "illegal"adoption. My adoption was done legally, through a legal, ethical and well known adoption agency. I became a legal orphan at the moment someone holding the (legal) authority wrote the word: "abandoned" on a (legal) paper. It coudln't be more legal than that!
This week we started the First Annual Demons of Adoption Awards and among our nominees are some of the organizations that most flagrantly promote the separation of mother's and children. It is good we raise attention to those organizations and expose their methods and power. Yet the adoption industy is much larger than just the NCFA and Adoption.com.
