Abstract:     
Although a free press is an integral part of democratic governance, intercountry adoption is one case in which the media makes it virtually impossible for governments to send children abroad for adoption. A country (State A) which gives up a child for intercountry adoption should receive a “credit” for that child which will entitle any other family within State A that may want to adopt a child to priority on the list at the Vatican. The second major function for the Intercountry Adoption Agency might be called the “annual report” function. All adoptive parents who take a child from the Vatican must sign a pledge to write an annual report on the welfare of the child.
