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.

The more families that decide to adopt from countries such as China and Guatemala, the more children in America that are left without a chance of a permanent home. There is no excuse for the number of youth that America?s adoption system has denied a family. When there are children in America to be adopted, families should not be forced to adopt abroad. If the American adoption system was less complicated, less people would have to go abroad to adopt, and therefore less American children would remain in the foster care system. ...read more.
