This book actually says that on page 10, last paragraph of the Forward. I quote, ¿. . . current unethical adoption . . . in the US exist to service greedy, needy adults.¿ On page 12, last paragraph of the Forward it says, ¿Books such as this one have an important role to play in exposing to the world the horrific (I take that to mean evil) realities of current adoption policy and practice in the United States.¿ The rest of the book is nothing but an exercise in how many ways Riben can say that all adoptive parents are needy and greedy, and adoption is evil. The book applauds the fact that the Socialists in Australia have gained a strangle hold on available children and virtually eliminated adoption in that country. The book states that there¿s only 2 options for children in Australia, staying with their biological parents thru welfare ¿parent payments¿ or foster care. The book praises this as being ¿genuinely child centered.¿ An apt illustration of how out of touch with reality Riben is, the stock market graph on the cover of the book runs backwards from right to left.Was this review helpful?
