    Why people prefer to adopt Chinese babies over white babies?

    There are just as many western children whom are in need of adoption, but these children frequently, go from one bad foster home to the next,  While Chinese babies easily get put into very nice adopted family, in fact demand for Chinese babies are so high, organized crime are stealing Asian babies whom are from happy home and mix them in with babies that actually need adoption. Statistically 1/10 of Asian babies adopted by western family, are in fact stolen babies.

    The US adoption system through the foster care/state system can be very complex. Despite what you say, it is not so easy for most couples in the US to go through said system especially if 1) they want an infant child, not an older one, 2) they do not want to wait by going through months/years of screening, interviewing, home studies, and having every aspect of their personal lives and finances scrutinized by the system. Then, often times, only to be turned down after all of that wait time, patience and effort..

    People turn to overseas adoption because it is perceived as being swifter, even if more costly. And easier to get that infant that they want, not an older child who may have developed difficulties bonding with parental figures after coming from broken homes and other difficult issues.

    Writing a hub for this question. It is a topic that gets me fired up so it may take just a few hours or a couple of days!

    I noted you said "western children" versus "Chinese babies".
    The reality is most people who choose to adopt would rather have a (baby) as oppose to child in the sense they're beyond toddler stage.
    If there is a "preference" for adopting Chinese babies it's probably because there are more of them available than western babies and the adoption process may be a lot easier!

    I think people prefer to adopt Chinese babies over white babies because the rules of adoption in China are more lenient than adopting in the western world where the system is quite complicated. I feel sorry for couples who wanted to adopt a baby then it will take ages and money before they are granted a baby to adopt or even be disappointed after the adoption officials turn down their application to adopt a baby. That is why they go as far as China to adopt a baby which is much easier. This is only my opinion.

      Essentially you're saying it has nothing to do with (the race of the baby) and everything to do with adoption process!

      I think so Dashingscorpio, it has something to do with the adoption process because even here in England it is hard to adopt babies. The process is not easy.

      Am I the only one who sees that adoption should NOT be easy!? Why don't these prospective parents understand that. They aren't adopting a cat, it's a human. It should not be without work!

      peeples, I believe most people are simply explaining (why) people are adopting more international children. Even super rich celebrities like Madonna, Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt have done it.

      Ok, the downside to the internet is inability to hear tone. It sounded like it was being explained away like it was understandable.

      What I found really odd about the question is it implied people preferred Asian babies because of their race!

      Yeah I picked up on that too, but again couldn't tell if maybe it was put wrong or that was the intention.

    The adoption process in China is easier than in some other countries. In the US, the adoption process is complex. I know several people who adopted children from China due to difficulty in adopting a baby in the United States. I believe the story about stolen babies. It is a racket in some countries to steal babies and meet the demand and get a nice profit. in the process. True stories have been made into movies about the schemes. People adopting babies must have the help of a competent attorney.
