WHAT IS "REHOMING?"
The majority of adoptions offer loving homes to children in need. Many of these placings are though professionally monitored post placement services and these children flourish under the care of their new found parents. However, there is a loophole in the adoption laws in America, where a shadowy network of Americans who use the Internet to abandon children adopted from overseas.
The online network present on Facebook, Yahoo and other sites alike provide an underground assembly of amateurs who broker children with the same ease as giving up a pet. On one Yahoo group, at least one child is advertised per week on average. Transactions and transfer of legal guardianship require only a one page signed document witnessed by a notary public. Despite “grave danger” the government allows Internet forums to go unchecked. This process of child swapping is called "rehoming".
