The Dark Side of International Adoption

Scott Carney wrote a piece on the case of a kidnapped boy in India who was adopted out to America for Mother Jones. It is an amazing (and heart-wrenching article. In case you haven't already heard about it, I thought I would share the link to the article here. And if you haven't read it yet, you should:

Meet the Parents: The Dark Side of Overseas Adoption

It is upsetting and awful and illustrates some of the worst in adoption. So be prepared.

Scott has continued to follow up on this case and writes about it on his blog. You can see the current post (and search through the rest of his blog): Meet the Parents: When Adoption Means Kidnapping.

It is good to see some work being done to bring this story to light. It's sad that the story exists at all.

Thank you to Scott for his work on this issue.
