Adoption And Religion

To avoid misunderstands, I rarely make room for any religious or more importantly Christian things on this blog for obvious reasons. This particular post is therefore to be seen as an exception, because international adoption as it is known, percieved and judged in the Western world was originally a Westernized and Christian concept.

Secondly the views on adoption is not the same as in the rest of the world. To Westerners an adoption means to cut all ties and relations with the birth country and birth family at once and forever. While the general view of adoption in the rest of the world means that it would be possible for the birth parents to take back their child or children, the child keeps the family surname and right to inherit and the ties with the birthfamily is maintained throughout the child's life.
