Just reading the comments on this article Are Americans Who Adopt Asian Children Robbing Them Of Their Actual Identities.
As an Aunt of 2 “American” adopted boys and a cousin of an little girl adopted from China, I respectfully disagree. My nephews were both adopted from the same state we live in, but are not the same nationality as my brother and his wife. Obviously their upbringing would be completely different had their birth mothers made a different decision. The oldest’s mother have birth addicted to crack and had no idea who the father might be. The youngest was born while his birth mother was in jail. They are now in a drug free, loving home. Their identity will be based on being raised by a loving family. Same deal with my cousin. Her identity will be based on that, and not growing up in an orphanage. I understand where you are coming from, but I still disagree.
