Global Adoption

Usually I read the articles in Mother Jones not because I’m captivated by them but because I feel I need the information they contain in order to balance out some of the facts I’m receiving from the mainline press. But this month, Elizabeth Larsen’s article “Did I Steal My Daughter?” spoke to both my head and my heart. I’d heard a lot of the particulars listed in it before—especially about adoptions from Haiti, but also from the ongoing coverage of celebrity adoptions--but none were presented in the balanced but personally touching way of this piece.
