Let's Make a Deal!

I recently came across the news that "at least 22,000 children across the country are waiting to be adopted by loving parents" but, just as in the U.S. of A., Canadians are choosing to adopt overseas instead.

So...since we have more than 100,000 kids in the same foster care and unable to be reunified with any family....

And since adopters by-and-large prefer imports over domestics...

Let's swap "unwanted" foster kids and that way Americans and Knooks can feel the joy of adopting internationally and no one has to feel as if they are recycling or buying second-hand, "previously owned" goods...

I mean, after all...who would want a USED Chevrolet station wagon when one could get an exotic Lamborghini, Porsche, or BMW fresh from the orphanage! And all it depends on which models are currently "available" for delivery and the price tag! If there's none "in stock" - people are willing to wait for one with the exact list of "accessories' they need and desire...and they will definitely NOT accept one with dents or any other IMPERFECTION!

If the foster swap program catches on, it would be expanded to Western Europe and even down under, though on a far smaller sale of course in countries that have moral and decent social systems that take care of their own.

Off to contact the consulates with this brilliant plan to "dispose" of both countries garbage...we can call it the "orphan plane."

After all - why should the US have the distinction of being possibly the only nation in the world who both imports and exports its kids for profit...and don't we live in a world economy? A FREE market?

We could change the poem on the Statue of Liberty to reflect the glory of the country that giveth and taketh!

"Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless bastards tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door....and I will send thee mine."

I do think it odd that US sends kids to Canada, apparently California and Missouri has been doing this for a while, they think children who are black have a better chance in Canada....

That is sadly true...and it clearly indicates the racist aspect of adoption.

Odd? Why is that people will adopt from South America and now even Ethiopia and other parts of Africa (as allowed to)...but reject our own Hispanic and African American chidlren in foster care.

And... healthy white infants go anywhere to anyone who can pay the price! Such was the case with the British dignitary who adopted a US infant.
