    Some people go through great lengths to have a child and from what I understand it is very difficult to adopt a child in the states.  So why not give these couples the chance of a lifetime and let them adopt a child from overseas.  Those children deserve to be loved and taken care of just as if the couple had their own biological child.

    We have two daughters adopted from China and three birth children also.  I expected when we adopted that we would be one of the only families who already had children but I was very wrong.  About 75% of the adoptive parents I know already have one or more children.  They adopt because they have room in their hearts and home for more children and feel that it is a good idea to give a home to a child who doesn't have one.  There are a lot of international and U.S. regulations aimed to make sure the kids who are adopted are not going to get a home any other way.  Of course all regulations can fail sometimes, but having gone through the process of adoption, I can certainly tell you that it is not an easy one and not one that everyone could pass.  When countries have policies which allow adoption to take place within a country then that is probably best.  However, as long as there are children needing a home and people who are willing to give them a home, the adoptions should be allowed to continue.
