Ever wondered what it's like to be adopted? This anthology begins with personal accounts and then shifts to a bird's eye view on adoption from domestic, intercountry and transracial adoptees who are now adoptee rights activists. Along with adopted people, this collection also includes the voices of mothers and a father from the Baby Scoop Era, a modern-day mother who almost lost her child to adoption, and ends with the experience of an adoption investigator from Against Child Trafficking. These stories are usually abandoned by the very industry that professes to work for the "best interest of children," "child protection," and for families. However, according to adopted people who were scattered across nations as children, these represent typical human rights issues that have been ignored for too long. For many years, adopted people have just dealt with such matters alone, not knowing that all of us—as a community—have a great deal in common.

"We don't have adoption issues; we have an issue with adoption." The author offers a rare perspective based on the natural law of identity and equal rights. In 2019, the cofounder of Adoption Truth and Transparency Worldwide Network asked adoptees a series of questions in a preliminary survey. Adopted people of all ages, backgrounds, and circumstances gave responses based on decades of adoption experiences. From every continent, individuals ranging in age from under 18 to over 70 answered. The survey results have astounded anyone willing to listen, proving the point that the industry needs to be placed under a microscope and scrutinized. For change to happen, adopted people should first be given rights to their origin, but adoption profiteers will never admit that family, biological next of kin, and culture matter. They've been pushing for the "right to adopt" over acknowledging the innate and natural right to family.

Has the global man-made market for children exploited mothers, fathers, families, and communities? Gain a bird's-eye view of the hidden side of the practice here. Most of us have heard the positive side of international adoption in the United States. Clips of children being sent into the arms of loving Americans can be found all over the internet. But did you know that in other parts of the world, the indigenous and less fortunate communities view overseas adoption as a violation against their natural, inherent, and God-given rights to family and community? How would you like to be given a new identity to live by and then removed from your sisters and brothers--never legally permitted to contact them again--even upon your deathbed? Adoption laws consist of many governmental and religious red tape adoptees are forced to contend even into their elder years with because of the fierce advertising campaigning of adoption agencies to convince the public to fall in love with their activities. This research book has been divided into four short, easy-to-read sections, revealing the making of the current child welfare system throughout time: starting in Europe (referred to as the European Child Migration Schemes); then spreading to America (known as the Orphan Train Movement); into Asia (called the Evangelical Baby "Swoop" Era), to what's trending today: Africa. The pioneers who built and profited from the industry continue to deny adoptees access to documents that could lead them back to their families. This book protects you against adoption profiteers and traffickers who profess God is on their side. It summarizes the inception and expansion of the adoption industry, focusing on its roots and consequences kept from public awareness. Discover the history of adoption from another angle--a view adoption agencies will never tell you. The findings have been called mind-blowing! Inspired by a Haitian adoptee who died of heart failure after learning that he had been trafficked to France for overseas adoption but was never able to acquire justice due to the public's love affair with the practice. The author co-founded Adoption Truth & Transparency Worldwide Information Network (ATTWIN), an adoptee-led forum entirely rooted in equal rights for adoptees. ATTWIN refuses to accept any funding from the lobbying efforts of profitable multi-million dollar adoption agencies. The cofounders are adopted people and are affiliated politically as "Independents." This book is NOT recommended for adoption profiteers, anti-abortion fundamentalists, evangelicals, or individuals against equal rights for adult adoptees. ​​​​ *For universities and institutions, this book is titled Adoption History: An Adoptee's Research into Child Trafficking and is available in hardcover

The secret "limited edition" book no one knows about just yet. A confidential tale literally kept in the closet for more than twenty years. This narrative, set from the 1970s through the late 90s in the Pacific Northwest, exposes how the personal issues of adoptive parents can take precedence over the truth of origin and fundamental human rights of transracial and intercountry adoptees--even into adulthood. In this particular case, hoarding, a traumatic brain injury, recovery, a divorce battle, a life-altering family secret, and cancer consume the adoptive parents time and leave absolutely no room to deal with the true legal status of their two adopted daughters. Instead, the twins persevere by using teamwork to overcome the adoptive family struggles. Kept private for more than two decades, this narrative provides understanding on the twins' innate nature to protect and uplift the innocent and those they love. (Sometimes the box of limitations can be found within the adoptive home.) This confidential book peeks into the personal young lives of twins who now as adults inform government officials, attorneys, university professors and the public on the crisis of adoption trafficking. But back in the 1980s and in the perspective found in this book, the twins were just trying to honor and obey their American parents-like everyone else in junior high and high school.Janine is now the founder of a confidential and worldwide resource to prevent adoption trafficking; however, she merely considers herself to be just another proud product of the X Generation. Her twin, Jenette, has worked in the healthcare field for more than 20 years and co-authoring books on energy therapy and meditation. Vance's second book The Search For Mother Missing: A Peek Inside International Adoption reveals why she acknowledges parents and siblings of adoption-loss. An absolute must-read to caution and protect uninformed parents, families, indigenous communities, and nation-states on the crisis of adoption trafficking. This updated version includes a postscript: What do you do when you find out you're an alien?

You've probably heard numerous positive happily-ever-after adoption stories, but did you know there are people deprived of God-given inherent and natural human rights? These individuals live an entire lifetime of never being given access to the truth or their origin, like access to their biological families, nor are they given legal access to their ancestry due to the laws spearheaded and reformed by what has become a 20+ billion dollar "Adoption and Child Welfare" industry. Instead, religious authorities want overseas adoptees to curtsy and smile for the camera and be grateful, or else they accuse us of being angry or "unable to bond." But how many thank yous do they want? This mini-book has been compiled to support the current adoptee rights movement.

In the spring of 1983, a North American couple who were hoping to adopt a child internationally received word that if they acted quickly, they could become the parents of a boy in an orphanage in Honduras. Layers of red tape dissolved as the American Embassy there smoothed the way for the adoption. Within a few weeks, Margaret Ward and Thomas de Witt were the parents of a toddler they named Nelson—an adorable boy whose prior life seemed as mysterious as the fact that government officials in two countries had inexplicably expedited his adoption. In Missing Mila, Finding Family, Margaret Ward tells the poignant and compelling story of this international adoption and the astonishing revelations that emerged when Nelson's birth family finally relocated him in 1997. After recounting their early years together, during which she and Tom welcomed the birth of a second son, Derek, and created a family with both boys, Ward vividly recalls the upheaval that occurred when members of Nelson's birth family contacted them and sought a reunion with the boy they knew as Roberto. She describes how their sense of family expanded to include Nelson's Central American relatives, who helped her piece together the lives of her son's birth parents and their clandestine activities as guerrillas in El Salvador's civil war. In particular, Ward develops an internal dialogue with Nelson's deceased mother Mila, an elusive figure whose life and motivations she tries to understand.
