I’m writing in response to the article "Indiana adoption agencies trying new strategies" from the Oct. 27 issue.
As an adoptive
mom, I was pleased to see an adoption article at the beginning of National Adoption Month (November). However, I was very
disappointed in the use of the term "supply" in referring to the number of children waiting for their forever families.
While IBJ is a business publication, and adoption agencies are businesses, the use
of the term was insensitive. Adoption agencies
work to create families and these children are not commodities.
