Abstract:     
Intercountry adoption matches children in need with parental aspirations across national borders. Recently, however, intercountry adoption has been the object of intense criticism, some of it constructive, some of it destructive. This article summarizes the spectrum of views from hostile to sanguine, rebuts the most cynical arguments, and builds on the contributions of those who seek to preserve, advance and strengthen intercountry adoption for the sake of the thousands of families it continues to serve around the world.
