ethics in adoption

Birth culture matters. Biological connections matter.  Respecting and caring for the materially poor should matter a whole lot to each of us. Adoption can be beautiful and redemptive and even quite necessary at times.  Discussion and dialog about the unethical things happening is hugely important - we cannot look away and pretend that ignoring the problems will make them go away.  To oppose evil we must have an ongoing dedication to examining outcomes and reality (truth) at all cost. As a friend reminded us recently, truth requires truth-tellers.
