Extracts from this document...


´╗┐Bret Sutton Cause and Effect Essay Mrs. Ellick April 16, 2012 Just as society has become more accepting of adoption, the process has become more difficult, expensive, and potentially heart breaking. The corrupt system has left many couples with no choice but to adopt abroad, and thousands of American children with no hope of ever having a permanent home. Just about anything that could go wrong with an adoption system has gone wrong with the American Adoption System.
