Guatemala foster system

I love the Country my daughter was born in. I LOVE the people and the children. Forgive me, but I don't trust the government and the people in power to put the children first. The way they have handled adoptions and respecting birth mothers and children has been awful. How about helping the mothers of these children to be able to KEEP their children. Putting them in foster care short term is not healing the wound. Click here to read the article in a Chicago paper.

I am sooooo with you. Have never seen the political system yet put the children first in all the years that we've been involved with adoptions from Guatemala (2003).
