Haïti. La Communauté de l'Adoption Internationale appelle à une "Opération Babylift" massive.

International Adoption Community Calls for massive 'Babylift' Operations from Haiti.

 

The history shows, in times of crisis, especially during situations like now in Haiti, that calls for Intercountry Adoption creates huge mazes to steal, trade and exchange children for abuses and also childtrafficking for Intercountry adoption.



It seems that the public closes its eyes for the reality of the intentions of adoption agencies and NGO's. Adoption is used as a replacement for safety features which should be placed first before children leave devastated countries for adoption.



Adoption is not a measure of rescuing children never the less the media and the adoption lobby wants us to believe. But every time when something happens in none western countries, the western cultures show no hesitation to fly out the most healthy and young children for intercountry adoption.



Even when children are located and in process of adoption, the measures to fly these located children for adoption out of the country should raise discussion based on the practise and history of such adoptions. At least, adoptive parents (most times board members of adoption agencies and in many cases owners of adoption agencies) should not be in charge of such operations.



Their interest is not to safe the children because of their lives but to safe the children to 'own' them. And that is not a reality which should be answered by hasty and unregulated operations like the new Airlifts for adoptions from Haiti.

Even the Joint Council (Umbrella of American agencies) is of the opinion that adoption is not the first thing to do:

 

Tom DiFilipo, president of the Joint Council on International Children's Services, said his group has set up a Web-based registry through which families can try to get information about the Haitian children they hope to adopt.

But the immediate focus is on the safety of the children and providing emergency relief, he said. Adoption is "part of the plan, but it's not the priority today," DiFilipo said. "The devastation is just phenomenal. We have a lot of work to do before we can move forward with the adoptions."


But the issue is, that the power of the Adoption Lobby sells its success during situations like these while they should know better. Any professional perspective is lacking and long term consequences are lost in the act of emotion. And this is a danger.



Lets be honest. When natural disasters struck western countries, these countries would not allow Airlifts from Asia or Africa to get white children out as first for intercountry adoption in these countries. Even when the paper process was already started. The first thing you learn in First Aid situation is, stabilize first before any further action. One should think before act. But it seems that the international community lost its mind.

- France. Pas de rapatriement collectif pour les enfants haïtiens en cours d'adoption en France, selon le Quai d'Orsay

Après le séisme en Haïti, le rapatriement de l'ensemble des enfants haïtiens pour lesquels une procédure d'adoption est engagée par des ressortissants français "n'est pas envisagé", a annoncé samedi le ministère des Affaires étrangères.

La "priorité absolue" est aux secours d'urgence, précise le Quai d'Orsay, répondant à l'inquiétude des familles adoptantes.

En revanche, "dès que la situation le permettra et en accord avec les autorités haïtiennes, le service de l'adoption internationale (...) procédera à un examen attentif de l'ensemble des demandes, en fonction de leur état d'avancement et de l'intérêt supérieur de l'enfant", ajoute le ministère.

Haïti est devenu le premier pays d'adoption en France, avec 731 adoptions en 2008, en forte hausse par rapport à 2007 (403), selon le site du Quai d'Orsay. AP
