Re: “When Love is Not Enough

This article is one of the most biased pieces of work I have ever read on international adoption. Cleaning out the orphanages is hardly what you will find in Russia or Ukraine. I too challenge the author to back up her comments. There are hundreds of thousands of "older" (>age 5) kids in these countries who will never have homes.

My son, adopted from Russia at age 15, is one of the most loving kids you'll ever find. He is motivated in school, on varsity sports teams and making excellent academic progress. Only two years here and he's already been selected as a counselor in a summer camp and volunteered with handicapped kids. In Russia, with no parents or extended family, he'd be on the streets, probably homeless with no opportunities to make it in life. From his friends adopted here in the US and other kids we know in adoptive families, they struggle but the majority do very well with their families and their lives.

Yes there are traumatized kids but "little monsters"? How many "little monsters" do you find among biological kids here in the US?
