    The problems of foster parents adopting children is a real sticky one. I saw a few of those cases when i was a child therapist. How to guard biological parents rights while also acting in the best interests of the children is super hard. But that leads into the one thing i think French missed about some of the lefts reasonable criticisms. There is a long sad history of POC and indigenous people having their children taken and adopted into white families for no actual good reason. There are now strong protections built into the law for bio parents but that does mean sketchy parents can string out the process to the greater pain of every one involved.Report

    I don’t know what to make of this. The OP identifies some objectionable adoption-related practices from the Right and then refers generically to objectionable adoption-related practices from the Left, but doesn’t tell us what they are. Maybe BSDI, maybe not. We should at least know what “It” is.Report
