Video: People and Power – Stolen Babies (reposted)

05 Aug

Incredibly heartbreaking video that everyone should watch despite being just over 20 minutes long. ETHICS matter.

For the commentary not in English there are subtitles, but even without the subtitles it is still incredibly powerful with just the English.
David Smolin is also part of the video.

August 5, 2011 reposted from May 2011 as this again in the news.  People need to wake up and talk about it and stop worrying about your desires, and see the reality when corruption happens.

      It provides context for the current “Guatemala orders return of child from US AP’s” news. It stuns me how rah-rah IA community can not see the damage when corruption happens.

    Wow, what a story. I would think this would call into question all the other adoptions that have taken place in recent years in other countries. I know several people who have adopted “orphans” from Russia. The US parents make trips to Russia to hand pick their children from orphanages. They have to make about 3 – 4 trips to complete all the paperwork, and to make sure they have all their ducks in a row before they can bring them back to the US. It is really heartbreaking for them to have to leave their children there while the process is followed. It probably is legitamate, but who is to say that those children are in the orphanage legally? This is a scary situation, I’ll say that.

      I don’t know alot about Russian adoptions to be truthful. But the countries that have closed to international adoptions – horrifying stories of harm.

    Unreal!! I hope those who did arranged for such adoptions from Guatemala to the United States and or other countries. That’s out right kidnapping plain and simple!!! They should be sentanced to the full extent of the law! How could someone just take someone’s child? Just follow the money , I bet you will learn a lot. God bless those parents who have had their children taken from them. I hope each child is returned to their parents soon. My prayers are with you and your child…and I do hope that you will be reunited soon.
