Does a child’s right to a family trump a country’s right to a child or vice versa ?

Definitely agree with your first statement, that a child has a right to a family -- unfortunately, it seems that in today's world many countries do not feel the same. Whether they are so concerned about their own image or the people are concerned with maintaining face, that they refuse give a child to a family is uncalled for.

Is denying a child adoption infringing upon their basic human rights? Should it lumped in with other human rights abuses that are monitored by agencies? Those are tough questions to answer, but I would say yes to both.

I completely agree with you and would say yes to both of your qeustions.

There are children all over the world longing for a family. There are families dreaming of having that child. I really feel passionate about someone helping to make both of their dreams come true. I hope agencies can work with all of these governments around the world to bring these children into a loving home! Let us know how we can help!

There are some encouraging initiatives underway that I hope will break this frustrating, politically-driven bottleneck and enable many more children to enjoy the basic right of a family.
