Overregulation of international adoption is driving the industry into extinction. Jayme Metzgar, senior contributor at The Federalist and founder of the adoption non-profit Romania Reborn, joins Ben Domenech on the Federalist Radio Hour to discuss major issues with the State Department’s adoption policies and the failure to advocate for adoption overseas.
“In the past 10 years, it has gone from over 200 adoption agencies that accredited to less than 150. And less than 100 of those actually do foreign placement,” Metzgar said. “The State Department would much rather have a just few large agencies in charge of adoption instead of smaller agencies.”
