The Truth Behind Guatemalan Adoptions

Pooja Pooja,Shimla, INDIA
Feb 20 2007, 9:58 am GMT

guatemala-adoption_50In the recent years, we have seen that adoptions in Guatemala have become a mounting trend. There were nearly 4,500 adoptions completed last year, and it looks like more will take place this year.

After countries like China passed stringent laws regarding adoption, foreign nationals are more and more turning towards Guatemala.

However, a recent account suggests some irregularities in the system within the country.

A bleak fact, has come into light, women for the sake of money are offering their newborn at the adoption centers or to baby brokers in the country.

Why women are doing this?

Endemic poverty, high fertility rates, and the stigma of unwed motherhood
are the major reasons that children in Guatemala are available for adoption. Birth mothers in Guatemala contact an adoption agency or attorney and often relinquish their babies only days after birth.

Thus, it has been suggested that before going in for adoption from Guatemala, you must crosscheck all the information. No doubt, domestic adoption agencies and the State Department are the most reliable source, yet you must try to dig out more information from the region.
