Uganda Expresses Fears Over Boom in Children Being Adopted Overseas

Posted in: , ,

Where do you stand over children being adopted out of their country, especially if they are adopted by parents of a different race? Does it matter? I had expressed the desire to adopt from Nigeria, but you'll be surprised how complicated the whole process is. I salute parents who adopt, irrespective of where they choose to do it, but this article has got me thinking.

Authorities in Uganda have raised fears that the country's children are being left vulnerable to abuse and exploitation by a staggering increase in unchecked overseas adoptions.

An official report, details of which were published on Tuesday by a local newspaper, said a boom in what it called the "international adoption industry" had led to some children who were not even orphans being taken into care for adoption or child sponsorship schemes.

The report also said there was no system for the government to track adoptions, leaving children at risk of being kidnapped or trafficked.

"There is no assurance that their fundamental rights have been respected and thus abduction, sale or trafficking of children cannot be ruled out," the paper quoted Uganda's Auditor General John Muwanga as saying.
