The last names of the girls, along with the regions they are from, have been omitted. Families of the girls didn't tell people back home where they were sending their children, fearing for their safety in a country where anti-American sentiment is widespread.

"Their translator and escort from Afghanistan, Fatima, whose last name has also been excluded, said her family had to move when residents learned she would be coming to America.
Part of the goal of Solace for Children, based in North Carolina, is to improve relations between the countries."

Except if people hate America so much they can't speak of it, how exactly does that help improve relations?

Too bad this group can't help take care of our own citizens who need help.....

Exactly, do your research before dealing with these people. They "have" to keep the children for months sometimes forever, "to make sure they heal". Then some articles talk about "how the kids seem like their own", yeah right. But they are not their kids!
Very good point when you say; "Except if people hate America so much they can't speak of it, how exactly does that help improve relations?"
These people also say that they left Belarus because they ran out of kids to help! This is a propaganda lie! Solace for Children spins stories to make themselves look good and hide motive.
The president of Belarus called such international adoptions 'disgusting" and stopped all international adoptions in 2004. That is when they (Solace for Children) moved into Afghanistan, not because they ran out of "kids to help'.
I also heard when they want to keep the children they make up stories about the parents and blame the "host" parents in America for not returning the children, absolving the organization of responsibility. Some good parents in Belarus and Afghanistan are now without their own children.

Good point...

"Too bad this group can't help take care of our own citizens who need help..... "

But then they would probably lie about their own citizens and take their children too :)

No wait, that is not funny, in fact that is scary. I wonder if they would get away with taking children in their own country?

Interpol or Afghanistan authorities needs to heavily investigate. I don't trust America to do a good job of stopping these people. They are too good at spinning stories, boasting of medical aid they gave, yet deny and hide facts of why they left Belarus, and have kept children when supposed to return them.

And why do they only want children? And young children too!

And they do not allow the parents to come to America. Your child goes with them then will they come back? Maybe not from what I have read.

"Amazing" (poster above), you are so right!

DO NOT TRUST SOLACE FOR CHILDREN

THEY LIE TO THE PRESS, FAMILIES, AND THE PEOPLE OF AFGHANISTAN TO GET CHILDREN!

WHY DO THEY NOT GO TO A NEIHBORING COUNTRY SO THEY COULD FREELY RETuRn HOME TO AFGHANISTAN? WHY AMERICANIZE THEM AND PUT THEM IN DANGER? BECAUSE THEY WANT THE KIDS In AMERICA!!!!
