Why CHIFF Will (and Should) Fail

Absolutely agree but it won’t and Big Adoption will prevail sadly.

Light of Day Stories

CHIFF is new US legislation related to international adoption. Its full name is Children in Families First. You can read about it on their website.

The ostensible goal is something most humans can agree on: children should grow up in loving, safe families.

CHIFF, however, would like to change “US policies and investments” to do this. That’s where things begin to fall apart.

Why will and should CHIFF fail?

Because it is essentially the product of a union between the US Congress and adoption agencies, with some adoptive parents mixed in as well.

Look at the list of CHIFF Working Group Executive Committee:

American Academy of Adoption Attorneys

Center for Adoption Policy
Child Advocacy Program at Harvard Law School
Christian Alliance for Orphans
