There have been a lot of articles lately that do an excellent job of describing what is wrong with adoption as it is practiced today. I’m sure I’ll miss some but here is a list of those I have encountered recently. Many of these concern international adoption, but the lessons learned could be equally applied to domestic adoption. With so many articles like this, I wonder if we are seeing a change in the perception of adoption as 100% warm happy fuzzy rainbows. I hope so because I, for one, would welcome some fresh perspectives on the subject.
