Meanwhile, an Oklahoma case of child abuse by adoptive parents against a sibling set of five they adopted from Liberia has not made the national news here in the US, but I'm sure it's on the minds of Liberian authorities.
Thanks for stopping by! Whatever Things Are True covers politics, policy, and parenting in international adoption. Too often, the way we talk about international adoption reminds me of that old fable about The Blind Men and the Elephant – we tend to confuse one small part of the animal for the whole beast. Although I’m the mother of three via international adoption, I try to take a child-centered approach to adoption issues. I hope you’ll stick around and share your thoughts, too.
