It’s adoption video Friday. This week’s selections are personal stories of forced adoptions in Australia, Canada and the UK.
As many of you know, Australia apologized for the common practice of forced adoption last year. However, Australia’s government was not the only country involved in the criminal practice of stealing children. As Dan Rather reported in the 2012 report Adopted or Abducted, the practice of forced adoption was an international epidemic from roughly the 1950’s to 2000.
These stories are tough to watch, but every victim deserves to be heard.
Let us never forget or repeat the shameful, painful and criminal act of coerced adoption. The cost to humankind is beyond words.
Blessings and justice for all mothers and children,
