American laws have prevented many couples from adopting babies, forcing them to go outside the United States to get a baby. Many babies go to foster homes. Now some foster homes can be fine but how many times do we read that children from foster homes have been neglected or abused even after it had been reported?
Why can't we make the United States adoption law easier for people crying to adopt babies? Now abortion has been proven life on conception. Strong heartbeat at two weeks.
Now the answer. Build or convert a home for the pregnant girls, not just a place to live but an education for after the birth mothers are not shown the babies so no bond is formed and no babies are dead. A loving couple are given the wish of a lifetime of a precious baby to love and give a chance to live. Girls could be taught to cook, sew, use a computer, typewriter skills to support themselves.
We need to change adoption laws in the United States. Keep children out of bad foster homes. I know some are good and caring but some only do it to get money and don't give good care. Read the charges in the newspapers. Elected officials, please help.
