    It would be a sad world if more births ended in adoption plan. If you want to reduce abortion help them make a parent plan.

    Why does it matter where the child without a family comes from?

    Anyone can adopt an American child. These families are adopting 4 and 5 year olds. Not infants. Russia had stricter requirements than most states. Tucket go ahead and domestically adopt a child in foster care with no ties to relatives and school age. Go ahead.

    These families met with at the request of the Russian government with the children multiple times, the children know these people are going to be their parents. To ban everyone mid process is cruel. I'm glad they are finding a way to complete these adoptions. Russia does not owe anyone a child. But the owe these children the families that were promised to them.

    This country has a serious demographic problem that people are not having children. I would think that adoption procedures should be expedited in this country. We can't force other countries to allow us adopt. We should also help young women to have their child and not have an abortion. Many couples are anxious to adopt. Why not use the money for an American child?
