Resouces challenging the necessity of international adoption?

Question by B. White: Resouces challenging the necessity of international adoption?
Could you provide links for some resouces demonstrating that the demand for adoptive children (of the infant variety) is much less than the supply? And the ethical issues this situation creates? Thank you!
Sorry, the question should say “resources.”

  1. The flip side of your question would focus on how to help the local reality in a given country since it is impossible to adopt ourselves out of the current situation. It requires a substantial change of worldview, and a realization that were those in the first world to willingly cut their standard of living by a certain percentage, or if we were to willingly enter into a period of economic decrease, then the unequal global situation would finally change, alleviating the amount of orphans, who are more likely to be not abandoned but unable to be cared for. There is an activist stance to take other than individually adopting a child; it almost requires a much bigger heart, because it asks us to be completely selfless.

  2. The demand for white children far outstrips the supply. It is the demand for black children that is low. Part of this was created by heritage acts in some states.
