    Foreign countries often have less stringent requirements than American agencies. In addition, international home studies are often less rigorous than domestic ones. Admittedly, there are some countries with strict restrictions regarding which people may adopt their children. Nevertheless, the large number of countries that are willing to allow Americans to adopt their orphaned children increases most people’s chances of meeting the standards of eligibility for adoptive parents in at least one country. As such, international adoption provides an alternate source of children for Americans who may not qualify as eligible adoptive parents under domestic…

When following the guidelines of Rule-based ethics, the greater good must always be considered first and foremost, not in a case by case manner. Whether or not the child had a strong relationship with her foster family becomes a non issue as we look at the statistics.

The family usually pays your medical bills and offers money after the baby born, in some cases up 100,000 dollars. Open adoption involves an agency that will find the child a home. In most cases you don't get to meet the people adopting your baby and there is minimal reimbursement.…

    In today's society, the idea of adoption is an open and welcome one. However, the biggest decision in adoption today is whether to adopt domestically or internationally. There is a very large growing trend in international adoptions today. Compared to adoption rates in 1987, in 2004 international adoptions had risen over 200% as compared to an 8% rise in domestic adoptions. After World War II, international adoptions began to rise because Americans began adopting European and Japanese war orphans. However, this was not the only reason for international adoptions. Desperate poverty and social upheaval such as the one child law in China, are factors that have led others to adopt from Latin America and China. Also, after the Child Citizen Act of 2000, international adoptions became easier. This act allowed foreign-born adopted children to become automatic American citizens when they enter the U.S., eliminating the legal burden of naturalization. However, domestic adoptions have continued to be a steady way for many couples to adopt as well. There are many differences in international and domestic adoption and many factors to consider.…
