UNICEF and their meddling…

What people do not realize is that UNICEF has a lot of power and money therefore all the influence. UNICEF’s position on international adoption is pretty staunchy. The reason countries like Guatemala and China no longer are adopting out is due to UNICEF and their meddling, their want to revamp the Hague conventions instead of just change a few things has led to the complete shut down of adoptions in some areas. Currently in Haiti the US has agreed to do whatever the Haitian govt. wants, and the Haitian govt. is headily influenced by UNICEF, if not bought by them (dirty corruption everywhere). So children are not currently leaving Haiti, even those who are already by all accounts legal US citizens. Meanwhile, children in Canada and France are going home. Why? Because those countries said poo poo to you UNICEF…

Below is the last paragraph taken from UNICEF’s stance on International Adoption…

The case of children separated from their parents and communities during war or natural disasters merits special mention. It cannot be assumed that such children have neither living parents nor relatives. Even if both their parents are dead, the chances of finding living relatives, a community and home to return to after the conflict subsides exist. Thus, such children should not be considered for inter-country adoption, and family tracing should be the priority. This position is shared by UNICEF, UNHCR, the International Confederation of the Red Cross, and international NGOs such as the Save the Children Alliance.

REALLY? Do you think Haiti has or ever had the infrastructure to find these people? Do they realize that these aunts and uncles are poor and likely have children of their own that they can barely feed? Family tracing a priority? They can barely survive right now…and have been that way for quite some time. Families sell their children, some have them live as Restavecs where they live with someone else as a domestic slave to be able to survive.

Is this right? Well, their culture is saved and they are still with “family” so I guess according to UNICEF, sure it’s all good.
