Adoption: How important is it that U.S. families adopting Haitian orphans preserve the child's native culture? Before this question can be answered, people in the USA need to be informed and learn the facts: Haitian parents love their children as much as any other parents on the planet. They give them away because they are too poor to feed them and are not able to send them to schools in a country where the public school system collapsed, and the private system--religious or non-religious --requires fees that they can’t afford.
