Why Americans adoptions are harder

The reason people do not like to adopt American children needing homs is that

1) We've allowed the entire process to get so profit driven that the costs are absolutely insane. You could seriously put a kid through college and buy him a car for the same amount of money it takes to pull him out of a foster home or orphanage.

2) Adoptive parents in this country can lose their rights suddenly.

A friend of ours finally finished an adoption of a child from the foster system (hence the money comment above) and when the bio-mom got out of prison 6 months later, she barely met the criteria set by the court and was able to retake custody of the girl. A few weeks later bio-mom failed a drug test, violating her parole (being a multiple offender) she went back to prison and the children went back to foster care.

My friend is not allowed to foster that child (conflict of interest) but can restart the process to adopt her. They are now looking overseas.
