Should Race Be a Factor In Adoptions?
Filed under: Adoption
November is National Adoption Month. London politician Tim Loughton recently said that interracial adoption in his country is unnecessarily difficult and barriers should be removed so that more children can find a loving home.
Loughton, a member of the British Parliament who serves as the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Children and Families, did not say that interracial adoptions were directly discouraged. However, he says, "Too many social workers are holding out for the perfect match, so suitable couples are turned away and children are staying in care for years as a result," according to the Guardian.
Do you agree? Should race be a factor in adoptions?
