Do you know this?

There are approximately 18000 parents registered with CARA, while the number of children in the Government's adoption pool is less 1800.

I watched a documentary tonight about an Indian adoptee, who was abandoned on the streets of Calcutta and was then adopted, and wanted to pass it along. The series is called “Intervention” and tells of this young man’s struggle with identity issues, relationship problems and drugs. It was hard to watch.

Here is the link, just a head’s up that it does have strong drug use images:

Being aware of how much pain our children might carry and to do our best to help prevent something like this from happening is a very important thing to think about before problems might arise . We need to stay in tune with our kids as much as possible, even if they don’t make that an easy thing to do, it will be well worth it. We also should prepare ourselves as much as we can by learning more about adoption and how it may affect your child, and even more if your child is originally of another nationality.
