Hopefully the title has warned you that my thoughts are all over the place. Below is one of the Ted Talks I listened to today…

While you listen to the talk given in Wellington, New Zealand by a member of OXFAM, think about how adoption is consumer driven, although a much more arduous process then simply a trip to the grocery store, prospective  and adoptive parents are the consumers in adoption.  They (the AP’s) hold the power to make the adoption agencies change their practices when found to be questionable ethically.  They make the choice of who they take their business too, and, what they require the process to be.  They also have the ability to speak up, or not.  Their voices have more power to effect change, than any other voice in the adoption community.
