Huffington Post – July 18, 2016
Senator Klobuchar and Senator Blunt didn’t seem to understand that international adoption for adoptees is a mixed blessing: children in behavioral treatment centers consist of 40 to 50% of adoptees, schools for children with learning disabilities are for a high percentage peopled with adopted children, the suicide rate of adoptees is 4 times higher than in the general population, the regulated and unregulated rehoming of ‘acting-out’ kids turned into a common practice and a thriving business, they didn’t seem to understand that the waiting rooms of psychologists and therapists all over the country are filled not only with adoptees but also with their parents.
