I've read all the posts back through April, and it's a great blog. The subjects she brings up are really thoughful and respectfully handled.<br><br>
OP, I think you'd be surprised at how common these attitudes ARE among international adoption social workers. Everything she wrote, every single thing, reflects the attitudes I encountered in my 10 hours of discussion with our homestudy social worker (our primary social worker in our adoption from Korea). From my discussions with several social workers at our separate placement agency, they also hold these values and beliefs (though, admittedly, they do allow specifying a gender preference when there are long lists of children that need homes).<br><br>
It is a great link, and thank you, but again--if you entered the international adoption process, I think you'd be happily suprised by the number of social workers that "get it," and the number of articles/books that prospective parents are given that talk about the very same issues as BABS' blog.
