Adoptions from China - Dutch TV

The Dutch TV programme Netwerk broadcasted tonight their shocking documentary on Chinese adoptions. It showed the families of children taken by the authorities, it unveiled that children were taken by the authorities and sent abroad. And that orphanages pay for children delivered to the orphanages.

Some of the children are said to have ended up in the Netherlands.
But this scandal effects other countries too.

The Dutch documentary is not yet available online, but some extra material is:
- interview with Professor Hoksbergen (Dutch)
- interview with Brian Stuy, researcher (English)
- interview with William Duncan of the Hague Conference (English)

The ratification of the Hague Intercountry Adoption Convention on September 16, 2005 clearly has not protected or served the best interests of the children of China.
China like all counties should put an end to the farming out of its children to international adopters and should serve its childrens interests in the best possible way by reforming fully its child care system so that standards can be raised allowing these children to return to their families.
