Adoptive Parents Use the Web to Throw Children to Wolves

by Blogburger on September 10, 2013

An underground system of online chat rooms exists for people to get rid of kids they have adopted, investigative reporters have found. On average, a child was advertised for what’s euphemistically being called “re-homing” once a week on one Internet message board watched over a five-year period. Most of the kids were between 6 and 14 years old and had been adopted from abroad. The youngest was 10 months old. These children are not protected by any law enforcement. There are no government agencies monitoring these bulletin boards.
