Is being a homeless, drug addicted prostitute in America less tragic?
than being a homeless, drug addicted prostitute in another country?

Is it easier to be homeless, drug addicted, selling your body for food, drugs, shelter in America? Is it somehow less tragic to end up a homeless, poor, drug addicted, prostitute in America? Is it because America’s streets are paved, while many other countries have dirt roads?

Is it less cold in the winter in Minnesota, New York, Illinois, Washington, Idaho than it is in China, Russia, India, Vietnam, Korea, Guatemala, Mexico, S. Africa?

Is poverty “better” in America than it is in other countries? I’m just wondering since this is a main argument in support of IA. Though I’m not opposed to all IA, the US Govt’s issues Adoption Alerts to caution American citizens about adopting from certain countries b/c of fraud, trafficking, etc.

So please enlighten me, is it because poverty is worse in other countries that we should adopt internationally rather than adopting from foster care in spite of the stats on children who age out of foster care?

“In a study of children who had “aged out” of foster care, researchers found that within 12 to 18 months of turning 18 & leaving foster care, 27% of males & 10% of females were incarcerated, 50% were unemployed, 37% had not finished high school, 33% received public assistance, & 19% of females had given birth to children.”

I am not oppsed to someone adopting internationally however I have found it sad that so manyolder children in American are left unadopted. It is not because it is worse conditions in my opion…it is because most people who plan to adopt want a baby and that is easier in other countries. I don’t understand why adopters demand a baby. To be a parent is to want to love a child…the age shouldn’t matter…be it does!
