Why do white people adopt Asian babies?
The way it is

Blacks don't adopt non-white kids because:

1) Black kids are the mos unadopted kids in the world. Check the stats. So black people feel if they don't adopt black kids then who will?
2) Also, black people would get so much flack from whites if they are seen with a white child. Imagine a black father with a purely white child at the airport. They would call security on him right away and think he stole the child. Sadly enough, that is the reality. Whereas a white fatehr with a black child would have no problem
3) And don't tell me white peopl adopt that many Asian kids out of the goodness of their heart. How come it is so imbalanced in comparison to other races? They do it because it is safer than a dark skinned kid. Let's all admit it. Cause the numbers prove it.

Calling someone racist because they don't want to adopt or marry someone of a certain race is as reckless as calling someone anti-Muslim because they don't want to convert to Islam. I would certainly call them bigoted if they wished to interfere with the freedom of another person to make the same choice they wouldn't. But this a classic case of political correctness gone out of hand.

EvaLasVegas your brother is soooo wrong. i'm Chinese and my caucasian parents adopted me and my three siblings (1 is Chinese the other 2 are South Korean). It wasn't about the color of our skin, it was about the fact that we needed homes as infants and my parents were so full of love that they adopted us.
think of a child, you don't have a clue. i suck at math and prefer history and english and thats why i do well in school. i know first hand how hard it is growing up in a small town where everyone knows everyone else and people stare you because you look different than your parents. People are so ignorant with their stereotypes. I've been asked if i speak asian and if my parents own a nail salon.

The simple truth is that white people adopt asian babies over black and south asians,ie Indians and pakistans babies because of racism that is the truth,and white Americans are the worst.

I think that both you and your brother are both sadly ignorant and hateful. People adopt people. Quit making everything color. Hello young lady, that is racism. We are blessed to have those among us who are compassionate enough take in an love children in need as their own.

Sometimes, I really wish I could force people to just wake up. There are just those who don't want to step away from their closed minded, tidy little systems of labeling and judging everything around them. However, It is they who walk around dead before they even die.

The US is very racist! I'm white and have a black son and asian daughter! I love my children! I don't care what color they are, whatever they choose to do, who ever they chose to love! Love is color blind! Of course you acknowledge the difference but you appreciate that as well!

I see the number of white parents adopting Asian babies increasing these days. I know that most of them adopted babies out of their own race because 1) they desperately want a baby 2) it's hard to get a white baby, 3) Chinese babies are one of the easiest to adopt, 4) they feel sorry for the abondoned babies and want to nurture them back home and so on. But as an Asian, I somehow feel like they are adopting Asian baby almost too easily and not really thinking about what it means for the kid growing up with them. Most of those adopted Asian kids are oddly quiet or look even scared. They know from early stage that they are not the parent's biological child and have hard time "fitting in". I know the parents will protest, but I've known many adopted kids growing up having a HUGE identity crisis (not telling their parents). Sure race does not matter to the family, but it matters to the society, and the kids can sense it. I feel like these days parents adopt Asian baby because of fashion. Just because Angelina and other celebs adopted Asian kids, they want to do the same thing. I hope those parents will be committed to their adopted kids emotional sensitivity and very very challenging background for many years to come.

I am not a racist person but i would rather my parents adopt a chinese child. There are many more asian children that need adopting than american. And most of them are girls. women are not respected or even wanted the same as boys. over there boys have a "higher quality" than girls.

Well ever since women where given the right to vote things have gone down hill. Gays should not be allowed to adopt, its not right. The apocalpse is coming. Women shouldnt whine about childbirth because they have it so easy otherwise. Also womens clits should be cut off like egyptians do, they dont deserve pleasure... peace out

I know two families that adopted children from other countries because it would take them 3 years and 4x as much money to adopt a child from America and they were able to get children from China and Poland in about 8 months. These were both couples who had tried to have children naturally for years but had problems so they wanted a child as soon as they could.

The American adoption system is broken so American children go unadopted unless someone goes through the private "market" or has the time and money to wait through the US process. Then you are stuck with all kinds of red tape and the chance of having your child taken away years after adopting them like what happened in the Chicago area some years back.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baby_Richard_cas... ).

There are also all kinds of stories about mothers changing their mind after potential adoptive parents have paid for rent, doctor bills, and other things.

China has since tightened their adoption rules because they actually had more people seeking to adopt children than they had children.

We could only wish we were so lucky for the children in the US that are up for adoption.

I believe you. But I wILL say many whites DO seem to collect Asians babies. When a thing becomes a TREND, over a reasonable point, it's a sign that someone's ego is getting served, NOT the children per se.
Well, people who give up their children for adoption should be THANKFUL that white people are willing to Raise their children! You dont see any Blacks or Asians helping white children!

White people adopt chinese kids because they want exotic babies and they want to stand out. They think it's cute. There's plenty of russian babies that look white. But no one will know the kids is adopted. So they opt to adopt an exotic looking baby of a different race to show off their generosity. They're helping save babies. They want to draw attention to that. I'm all for equality but as a person of color, i know better and am very skeptical. Growing up a minority, I can only wonder how it feels like to look entirely different from everyone you're related too and getting singled out as obviously not blood related.

First off, I am Asian and my husband and I adopted a little girl from China--NOT because it was a trend--because we truly wanted a baby. We are in the process of adopting from China again and the wait so far has been 3 years, it is not easy nor is it quick. We have many wonderful people that we have met through our adoption, and believe me none of those families adopted because it was a trend or to stand out. These people truly love their children and adopted them out of love. They are their children regardless of race. Every one has their story.....and no one goes into an international adoption on a whim. It is a hard road. You are scutinized, followed up on years after the adoption, and have to "jump through so many hoops" for immigration.

I commend all of the parents of these children. One of the main reasons I hear time and time again is that here in the states even though an adoption is "final"--it can be overturned. Open adoption is not for everyone. It is hard. So please do not judge anyone unless you have walked in their shoes.

Oh and to the poster who asked if Asian people adopt caucasian. Yes they do. And yes African American people also adopt Asian babies.

I would also like to add that asian people are very very ugly, almost all of them. Who would want an ugly baby on purpose. Why not leave that up to god, i mean roll the dice have your own baby if your white and good looking like me then your chances of having a good looking kid are alot better then adopting an asian because in that case you are saying Hey! Lets adopt an ugly asian baby!! also i strongly feel hitler had the right idea but chose the wrong people to kill, we would all be much better off without asians.

It's ignorant talking monkeys like you who should be eliminated. Let's hope you never adopt any children. God have mercy on them if you do.
