Laws Regarding International Adoption

International adoption is when a child is adopted by caretakers from another nation, often called stranger adoption. In this case the parents and adopted child meet at a point of intersection that crosses biology, socio-economic class, race, religion, ethnicity, nationality and cultural heritage. Because international adoption is expensive, it's usually the case that the adoption is requested by white, privileged people from a well-off country in the world who would like to adopt a child from a poor family belonging to a less-privileged country.
There is much controversy around international adoption, some see it as positive in helping the world's needy children, yet others see it as the a terrible human exploitation of the poor. It's ironic since many of the poor countries are that way because of political and economic strategies and choices made by the wealthy countries. On the contrary, since this is true, it may be considered a responsible action to adopt a child who was born to a poor family when you have something more to offer. It's very individual and specific and certainly depends why the child was put up for adoption in the first place. Since the process of adopting internationally is private and costly for the parents-to-be it is often looked down upon as it seems the wealthy are "buying" children from the poor.
