dc.descriptionThere are children being born every day around the world. Some parents of these children do not desire to keep their children or are forced to abandon or give them away due to reasons such as extreme poverty or the one child policies in countries like China. Whereas in some cases children end up being orphaned. Through inter-country adoption, also known as international adoption, third world countries have allowed potential adoptive parents, who are mostly couples from first world countries, to adopt children and make them citizens of the adoptive parent’s country. Inter-country adoption is of two types: an open adoption and a closed adoption.en_US
dc.description.abstractInternational adoption is the most widely form of adoption practiced in most developed countries. Although many people consider this form of adoption as a “chance to save the day and become a hero”, it also opens the door for many activities that end up affecting the adopted child negatively. It also causes psychological trauma and identity crisis in the adoptee. Therefore, it raises the question as to whether such adoptions are done in the best interest of the child.en_US
