    Child re-homing

    The practice is called "private re-homing," a term typically used by owners seeking new homes for their pets. Based on solicitations posted on one of eight similar online bulletin boards, the parallels are striking.

    "Born in October of 2000 – this handsome boy, 'Rick' was placed from India a year ago and is obedient and eager to please," one ad for a child read.

    A woman who said she is from Nebraska offered an 11-year-old boy she had adopted from Guatemala. "I am totally ashamed to say it but we do truly hate this boy!" she wrote in a July 2012 post.

    Another parent advertised a child days after bringing her to America. "We adopted an 8-year-old girl from China… Unfortunately, We are now struggling having been home for 5 days." The parent asked that others share the ad "with anyone you think may be interested."

    Reuters analyzed 5,029 posts from a five-year period on one Internet message board, a Yahoo group. On average, a child was advertised for re-homing there once a week. Most of the children ranged in age from 6 to 14 and had been adopted from abroad – from countries such as Russia and China, Ethiopia and Ukraine. The youngest was 10 months old.

    Americans use the Internet to abandon children adopted from overseas

    KIEL, Wisconsin – Todd and Melissa Puchalla struggled for more than two years to raise Quita, the troubled teenager they'd adopted from Liberia. When they decided to give her up, they found new parents to take her in less than two days – by posting an ad on the Internet.

    white people see having foreign children as having an accessory...when you no longer have use for it....put it up for sale on ebay or craigs list



    i think the topic came up before about interracial adoptions....some people think it's a good thing...i never cared for the idea

    fukk white people
    you ALL AGREE with my opinion, which is why NONE of you ever EFFECTIVELY DISPUTE IT

    you ONLY have faith in the WOMEN'S ability to ELEVATE which is why you only FOCUS ON WOMEN...you ALL have long given up on Black men

    you just don't have the BALLS to OVERTLY AGREE....rather just do it INDIRECTLY

    weak men only can deal with weaker women

    in the presence of strength you diminish...

    problem more is that overseas adoptions rarely require psych evaluations of the ppl adopting. Can't get away from that here in North America or Europe. Lots of ppl would be ruled out if they had to visit a psychologist as part of their home assessment. But many lesser developed countries dont require it or have the infrastructure to do it...hence you get the above bullsh*t.

    And on top of that, even if the original family was screened, the other family that they give the child to is not screened....

    well if you have adopted any child you can't just give it a way like so.
    So the next family could be mad as hatters but the kid shouldn't be placed online for perusal in the first place without going through the courts and the whole legal process of changing parental rights to another.

    Yeah.
    They act like they are giving away kittens!!!

    How is that even legal? The laws in this country really do nothing to protect children.

    I won't post it on IMIX but there is a soft core child porn site that is perfectly legal. The parents get paid for people to view it and for men to send clothes and have the little girl pose in the clothes. They even have bikini photos. They say that people would see her in her bikini on the beach so it is not porn. There is no sex and there is no second person but you know what they say about porn- "I know it when I see it!"

    Makes me so angry.

    I'm sorry, this doesnt seem like re-homing or adoption to me..seems like a new way to disguise child sex trafficking!

    in any event..its disgusting. these ppl take children from other countries and then abuse and discard them like trash! harsh charges should be bought against any american who adopts overseas and tries to re-place that child....seems tooooo fishy to me

    This happens because of loop holes in the law that people exploit. The power of attorney allows people to circumvent the courts. Yahoo did shut down the online group but that changes nothing for the moment.

    ---------------------------

    "Giving away a child in America can be surprisingly easy. Legal adoptions must be handled through the courts, and prospective parents must be vetted. But there are ways around such oversight. Children can be sent to new families quickly through a basic "power of attorney" document – a notarized statement declaring the child to be in the care of another adult.

    In many cases, this flexibility is good for the child. It allows parents experiencing hard times to send their kids to stay with a trusted relative, for instance. But with the rise of the Internet, parents are increasingly able to find complete strangers willing to take in unwanted children. By obtaining a power of attorney, the new guardians are able to enroll a child in school or secure government benefits – actions that can effectively mask changes of custody that take place illegally outside the purview of child welfare authorities."

    this is so sad...

    i think the children as well may need psych counselling ...we may think the child would just be grateful to come to america for a "better life" but moving to another country with strangers can be so tramautic even if it is for "the better' especially when you adopt children who are older...

    You are so right. I have a friend who adopted a child from Russia. The kid at the time had MAJOR attachment issues. He was in an orphanage since birth where hugs and affection just didnt happen, so his ability to bond or show affection wasnt there at all.

    Long story short, my friend had to hire a therapist herself to help him connect to his potential new family.
    And as she said, once he came to the States, she had her psychiatrist on "speed dial". She and her husband knew it wasnt going to be a walk in the park with an emotionally damaged kid but they really committed to helping him....He is a teenager now and he still has his bonding issues but he is a lot better.

    Kids coming from certain countries will have emotional and psychological issues. Its not just about having a cute baby or toddler to cuddle.
