Ethica link…

Two separate posts by Ethica…
Ethica has released a guideline for international adoptees whose adoptive parents failed to ensure they were granted US citizenship.
Adult adopted persons may face grave immigration consequences if U.S. citizenship was never obtained on their behalf.  Some adult adopted persons have been deported or have encountered considerable difficulty in naturalizing after reaching adulthood.  Some estimate that the number of adult adopted persons without U.S. citizenship could number in the thousands.  Most adopted persons in this category are completely unaware that they are not U.S. citizens.
Ethica has also provided a link to a news story from Voice of America titled Under Pressure Ethiopia Plans to Crackdown on Baby Business“.
I have been watching Ethiopia adoption for some time now and the concerns raised previously do not appear to have been dealt with.  I am glad people are speaking up and speaking out.
