I am really sick of reading comments from selfish and ignorant people who express that disabled orphans abroad should remain in their own country and not burden our system in America. I am tired of people suggesting that only children who were fortunate enough to be born in this country are deserving of love and a family.
I can only assume the people who leave these kinds of comments have never tried to adopt domestically before. Because if they did they would probably know that most kids in the foster care system will never be put up for adoption. Most of them will end up back with their families. The few that do get put up for adoption will most likely be adopted by their foster family or by extended relatives. The people who leave these kinds of comments surely have never researched mental institutions for orphans overseas and the conditions that exist in them. I'll bet those people have never actually inquired about one of the special needs waiting children from child welfare, because if they did they might have learned that a hundred plus other families had already inquired about that child and were hoping to be chosen to be his lucky parent. I'll bet they haven't looked into the requirements to adopt internationally. If they did they would know that prospective adoptive parents must prove themselves to be financially self-sufficient and must provide proof that their insurance will cover their adopted child/children's medical expenses. And I'm sure they don't realize that most government benefits for disabled children only apply to those adopted domestically anyway.
No, I'm sure they didn't know all of those things or else they wouldn't make such idiots of themselves by leaving comments like this:
"There are special needs children in this country who need to be adopted so I have a problem with someone bringing kids over from other countries like this."
"People think they are doing a noble and good thing, but they are in turn burdening this country which will therefore take much needed resources out of an American children life."
"Immigration should not allow these people to do this. Even if they have their own insurance through their employer or privately purchased, we dont need these kind of burdens being added."
"That's the LAST thing this country needs is more people from another country coming here to live off our underfunded over used Medicaid system!!"
