Video official de Noticias Telemundo. From the 80s until the early 2000s, thousands of Guatemalan children were robbed and sold for thousands of dollars, separated from their mothers in the hospitals where they were born or taken from their homes. Today, those children have grown up and had the opportunity to look for their biological parents and their abductors.



Adoptionland: From Orphans to Activists
Ever wondered what adopted people are saying right now about adoption? This anthology begins with personal accounts and then shifts to a bird’s eye view on adoption from domestic, intercountry and transracial adoptees who are now adoptee rights activists. Along with adopted people, this collection also includes the voices of mothers and a father from the Baby Scoop Era, a modern-day mother who almost lost her child to adoption, and ends with the experience of an adoption investigator from Against Child Trafficking. These stories are usually abandoned by the very industry that professes to work for the “best interest of children,” “child protection,” and for families. However, according to adopted people who were scattered across nations as children, these represent typical human rights issues that have been ignored for too long. For many years, adopted people have just dealt with such matters alone, not knowing that all of us—as a community—have a great deal in common. -- Rev. Dr. Janine Myung Ja
