Why Adopt Internationally Instead of From the United States?

An Adoption.com Original Video | International Adoption Answers

Denalee Chapman November 06, 2015

Parents who have adopted internationally are frequently asked, “Why?  When there are so many children right here in your own country, why do you choose to adopt internationally?”  Our panel of adoptive parents have answers. One of the very good answers includes the fact that children are children, no matter where they are born. Why not give a child from another country a chance at a good life? It doesn’t matter to these adoptive parents where their children are born—what matters is that they find the children who belong to them, regardless of their place of birth.
