Waiting families hope long halt in Congo adoptions is ending

NEW YORK (AP) — After nearly two years of heartache and frustration, several hundred American families now have reason to hope that children they are adopting from Congo may finally be allowed to travel to the United States.

For many families, the long wait has been immensely challenging. Some parents relocated to Congo to be with their children, while Congressional supporters of the families said at least 10 of the children died and others suffered serious medical problems during the delay. SOURCE

13 KidsLest someone think I am insensitive to the plight of children in Congo and every other flea infested sand pile, jungle or swamp the world over; I am not insensitive, I DO care that they are sick, thirsty and hungry. I DO care that they are in need of loving, nurturing and supportive parents, I really do care.

But the fact of the matter is this; we have MANY children right here in the USA that are sick, thirsty, and hungry and are in need of loving, nurturing and supportive parents.

If the touchy-feely do-gooders want to do some *serious* good, they need to stop being the globalist Liberals that they are and take care of AMERICAN children first. Once every kid in the USA has a home, clean water, plenty of food, medical care, education and a loving, supportive family then, and ONLY then do we need to worry about the rest of the world.

One in 30 American Children Is Homeless, Report Says. Let THAT sink in the next time you want to praise some Hollyweird actress for adopting several foreign kids when our own children, AMERICAN children, are in need.

    Agreed. Charity begins at home. When the home has excess, then you reach out.

    This topic has always pissed me off. How can anyone in their right mind not see this? Our country has homeless, orphaned, abused children of it’s own. I give to organizations that are compassionate to our indigenous population and not all organizations are honest with what they do with the funds donated. Remember the Red Cross mess after 9/11? We, as a nation are generous after any disaster. The amount of foreign aid (borrowed money) our congresscritters give to nations that don’t like us is shameful. I had hoped our newly elected republicans were going to do something sensible about reigning in the wasteful spending but I guess I was wrong.

    Well said! Too many kids right here in America need and want good parents.

    You’re exactly right, Fred. There is a plethora of orphans right here that need a home.
