Those questions ought to be asked of every adoptive parent. Every single one.
That includes rich white het couples adopting Asian or African kids. There is a lot of abuse in the developing world, driven by the fact that Western white couples will pay a lot of money to adopt kids.
It also includes those who adopt out of the foster care system. Even when kids are removed from their biological parents because of abuse, it is only further abuse to conceal from them the identity of their own flesh and blood.
Behind most adoptions, there is a tragedy. Adoption can be a beautiful thing and a mercy. But there is always tragedy behind it: the death of parents, or terrible failures or crimes against parenthood.
My God, has no one here even read Harry Potter? You think I'm just making this up?
But what Casey Dellacqua and her partner Amanda have done is most likely worse. For while adoption of orphans from the third world can sometimes mean that children are stolen from their biological parents, it doesn't always. But the use of sperm donation makes orphans **by design**. It is often INTENDED that the child never know her father. Hence, Dellacqua and Amanda are not reaching out to a child touched by tragedy, as those who adopt an orphan or a child of abuse. No, they have inflicted the tragedy for their own purposes.
We are now seeing the children of such marriages coming to adulthood. They are not happy, and they are speaking out about it.
"I really have friends on the tour, and I'm really happy for it. ...I remember when I was young and someone told my father that I'm too nice for tennis. So I'm just glad that I can be nice off the court and fighting on the court." — Petra Kvitova, May 8, 2005
