Dorothea Originally Answered: Can I get the pros and cons of international adoption? Pros and cons of foster to adopt?
International adoption worries me greatly. There have been so many stories about children being put up for adoption that still have family members that could care for them. Adopting them and taking them to the US (or other western countries) means that they not only lose their family - but they also lose their language, their country, their culture. Sure many would say that they'll have a 'better' life in the US - but who are we to say such a thing. Why are we - in the western world 'better' than anyone else?? It just crosses a really blurred line. UNICEF writes that inter country adoption should ONLY happen if there is no other choice for the child. But how much money has been paid under the table - and what is really the truth?? I also read many IA blogs (international adoptees) - and so many struggle with many more issues than I do - and that's saying a lot!! There are literally thousands of kids in foster care that need loving families - NOW. I think that all adoptees carry some 'damage' - from the act of being separated from their mother's and other family. International adoptees suffer more 'damage' from loss of country etc. If the child then suffered some kind of abuse - then the child would be even more 'damaged' - on top of all those things. Ultimately - there are so many children that need love - and a stable home. And if they do find families that love them for them - not try to make them something they are not - and acknowledge fully where they have come from/their past - they will be far better off. You have to look in your heart and see how much you're willing to take on. With kids from foster care - there may be many early problems to iron out - depending on what the child has been through - but the rewards would be great in the end - for knowing that you were doing the very best for a child that really needed it. Oh - one other point - at least if the child was from foster care - you might have a better chance of the child being able to have some knowledge of their first family - and hopefully some kind of contact. For the child - an adoptive parent such as yourself - who understands the need of adoptees - this would be a great benefit for the child. Sorry - I'm rambling today - thoughts are all off the top of my head. I hope I've helped a little. Here is a blog from an adoptive parent - Margie - which could be very helpful. She adopted two children from Korea - and is now very much involved with ethics in adoption - a lovely lady - and a great read - http://thirdmom.blogspot.com/ She also has a HUGE link page you could scan. Here is a link to Larry's blog - he was a child given up for adoption - but ended up in foster care his whole life - and aged out when he was old enough - http://prairieguy.wordpress.com/ He would be a great resource of foster care knowledge. And here are links to adoptee blogs - many of whom are Internationl adoptees & as well as domestic - http://www.adultadoptees.org/forum/index.php?topic=2805.0 I really appreciate - on behalf of many adoptees - your openness and your willingness to learn. It's refreshing. Thankyou.

Hello, my name is Chelsea Cha, and I am a grade 11 student at Earl Haig Secondary School. For my Family Studies research project, I am conducting a study of the factors that encourage couples and single parents to access international adoption agencies to adopt children. You have been chosen for an interview because you are in the process of adopting or have adopted a child through international adoption. Your identity will not be revealed. I am only interested in finding out generally why people choose this form of adoption. No individual answers will be used, just group answers or percentages. Individual answers will not be discussed with agency.Please answer the survey through the link below. Thank you. https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/internationaladoption123

Pro's = Portability, Light weight, cost efficient Con's = No CD Drive built in making it extremely hard to repair the computer (buy the external USB drive for the extra $75 as it's worth it in the long run). The overheat faster. Limited resources.

Look it up on the internet, specific adverse reactions should be easy to find. Drugs that are not prescribed by a physician, and some that are, may make the situation worse by worsening depression or physical disorder. Drugs are toxic substances (that's why it is referred to as intoxication), toxicity is how they alter behavior and perceptions. 1) Drugs (prescribed or illegal) and alcohol (toxic substances) achieve their intoxication effects through altering brain function chemically? 2) The human brain is not “fully wired” until the early to mid 20s? 3) The artificial manipulation of a developing brain may have permanent effects on neural connections? (see Chaos Theory for review of major effects associated with minor variations) 4) “EEG studies show that very long duration marihuana exposure might be associated with slowed cognitive processing.” (http://www.psychotropics.dk/usr_view_mol... “A slight change in the balance of brain chemistry can cause large changes in behavior. … Substance abuse and exposure to a variety of toxins can damage the brain, modifying intelligence, aggression, and decision-making abilities” (Eagleman, p. 157). The four major classes of abused toxins (alcohol, nicotine, psychostimulants, and opiates) microscopically plug into the reward systems of the brain, causing the circuits to be “hijacked” and enslaved (pages 204-205). These toxins artificially stimulate “the mesolimbic dopamine system (and) have self-reinforcing effects, and users (as a worst-case scenario) will rob stores and mug elderly people to continue obtaining these specific molecular shapes” (p. 205). How ironic would it be if your intelligence (that facilitates your rationalization of drug/alcohol use) disintegrates noticeably as a result of this use? And, wouldn’t it be even more ironic, if you did not retain sufficient intelligence to determine that you are not as intelligent as you once were? All mental processes are bio-chemical in nature; there is empirical evidence confirming that artificial laughter alters the brain chemistry in a positive way. And, depression can be triggered by defective assimilation of sugar (consult a physician). One should not underestimate the effects of proper diet (minimal sugar, avoid processed and refined foods; seek out whole grains, fruits and vegetables, seeds and nuts), avoiding drugs (legal and illegal) and alcohol, and adequate sleep (consistent each day and preferably more than 7 hours), which are essential for optimal physical and mental functioning. ADHD can be treated in this way. And, meditation has been proven to reduce stress (many books are available). Also, self-absorption can be associated with some level of depression. The American Journal of Physiology (Sep 2011) explained how exercise improves memory, treats depression, and makes people feel better.Dr. Gabe Mirkin's E-Zine, Exercise Increases Mitochondria in Brain Cells: “Exercise increases the size and number of mitochondria in the brains of mice (American Journal of Physiology). … This could explain how exercise improves memory, treats depression, and makes people feel better and helps them to think more clearly.” Examination of clinical research indicates that “antidepressants are not much better than placebos - dummy pills with no active ingredients in them at all. But that was only part of the story. Many of the studies sponsored by the drug companies were never published at all. They had been withheld from the public and even from the doctor.” [I. Kirsch, The Emperor’s New Drugs: Exploding the Antidepressant Myth] Depression self-help: http://www.helpguide.org/mental/depressi... http://www.helpguide.org/mental/depressi... National Mental Health Association Hotline 800-969-NMHA (6642) American Psychological Association therapist locator: http://locator.apa.org/ Self-pity is easily the most destructive of the nonpharmaceutical narcotics; it is addictive, gives momentary pleasure and separates the victim from reality. John W. Gardner A man is but the product of his thoughts, what he thinks, he becomes. Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948) The mind is its own place, and in itself Can make a Heaven of Hell, a Hell of Heaven. John Milton, Paradise Lost, Chapter 1 (1667)
