Protecting Local and Global Families from the Crisis of Adoption Trafficking.
Thousands of children (now adults) have been falsely labeled “orphans” or kidnapped from overseas. Reports are also coming out that parents (of adoption loss) were misled or even lied to –targeted for their children while in vulnerable situations.
Huge amounts of money were transferred along with large donations to and from facilities and facilitators. This type of child trafficking occurs in Korea, Colombia, Chile, Guatemala, Ethiopia, India, China, Haiti, U.S., and Uganda. It’s happening on every single continent.
Most people are unaware of the crisis of adoption trafficking. Infants and children are literally stolen from moms and dads for international adoption. From ACT USA, you will understand how this happened and why it began. The tragedy even occurs in the US but in a different way. Together, we can protect local and global families from the loss and grief associated with missing children that fill the overseas adoption market.
“The Adoption Trafficking Awareness Symposium gave me a platform to speak the awful truths about my and my siblings’ adoption! For the first time in a long time, I look forward to what tomorrow may bring. Before, I frequently wished tomorrow wouldn’t come for me. Thank you.” Melisa Trejo
The recent adoption symposium was wonderfully curated. I was impressed with the speakers who gathered from across the world and shared their individual stories. I know the hard work and many hours the [ACT USA team] spent on this conference meant it was going to be a success, and it truly was a meaningful experience. Keep up the good work and I hope to experience more from these two!” JS.
