Free text In DCI's collection (DCI 5565): Document No 8 in dossier on inter-country adoption - Keynote address at the start of the experts meeting on intercountry adoptions co-sponsored by the Philippine's Department of Social Welfare Services and DCI (Manila April 1992). The author expresses her belief that the main problem with international adoptions is not so much the complexities of the legal procedure, nor the irregularities that can occur in the process, but the social aspect of adoption of a child of a different cultural and racial background from the adoptive parents.
