Final Exam Notes - Following every war: Korean, Vietnam, we adopt babies outside countries - In the last 10-15 years we had a spike in international adoptions - These countries included: China Russia South Korea Romania These are known as SENDING NATIONS: those countries where we are getting the babies from outside the US - We can get babies for a little bit younger in these countries compared to the US - If you went to immigration services you can get a younger baby - Similar costs, South Korean baby was 25k - Russia used to mandate people to stay there for a while In the US, the big difference today is that we have moved towards semi open and open adoptions - Adoption rights movement in 80s and 90s, the kids wanted to know about their birth parents and the internet made it possible to track down their family members Also, finding medical history - Before the movement all adoptions were sealed, so you could not know. - The birth mother gives her name, possibly birth father, how she got pregnant etc, she has some ability to choose who the parents can be - The parents can meet the person and often will ask if there is open exchange of information from time to time - Open adoption: Back and forth of information, especially medical. - Agencies facilities it - If you don’t want that, you can seek an international adoption - China was a great place for single parents at a time, they put a bit of a moratorium - Romania/ Russia: babies come from neglect - There is a subspecialty in pediatric medicine in the US known as adoption medicine, you can seek out a professional to make sure the baby has the same kinds of immunizations, etc - We now know that adoption medicine is a place where people can go to get help emotionally and physically for babies - When it comes to adoption, someone’s gain is essentially someone else’s’ loss Reading: If a baby was up for adoption is was because a girl got pregnant and her parents couldn’t know about it or she couldn’t raise them. As a result, group homes formed where these girls could go and live, but had to give those babies up. Forced to terminate rights to Catholic runned homes/hospitals and the babies were given to couples who couldn’t have children.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
