Russian TV
Thursday, June 07, 2007
There was a TV show in Russia this week which highlighted their current adoption situation. Evidentially it was fairly different than shows done there in the past. This one was accurate.

They didn't bash international adoptions and instead talked about how many Americans adopt children that have special needs (medical, etc.) which is rarely done by Russians. It also talked about the fact that all the agencies are being held up and that the children are suffering as a result.

Don't know if this will help but it certainly won't hurt.

    I certainly hope it helps! I was afraid the on going talks with Putin and the other countries of Western Europe would only make things worse. We will always be thinking good thoughts.

    Thankfully, the global political issues, according to most in the know, have little to do with the adoption issues. While it's true our standing in the international community is at an all-time low, most people feel when it comes down to issues like adoption the only thing that matters is how the children are treated, etc. so the only "bad press" would be stories about abused kids or things like that.

Thoughts

"The two greatest obstacles to democracy in the United States are, first, the widespread delusion among the poor that we have a democracy, and second, the chronic terror among the rich, lest we get it."
