It’s a profoundly sick society that can’t see the truth of adoption trafficking and profiteering. How can this be 2017?
Kinton, who founded Amazing Grace nearly 20 years ago, says licensed agencies like hers are struggling to stay in business because pregnant women are choosing to give up their babies through independent facilitators.
Look, Lady, we all know why your business is failing: Most women want to keep their babies, and nowadays, they can. The pickings were slim when you started, and they’re slimmer now. And that’s great!
“When I first started, we were pairing 20 babies with forever families every year,” Kinton said. “Now a good year is 10.”
If adoption were really about the children this would, of course, be cause for celebration, not whining. God’s “Amazing Grace” is supposed to benefit Ms. Kinton and her paying customers, not babies and their existing families.
With fewer babies to pair, agencies such as Amazing Grace have fewer families paying to complete the adoptions, which keep the agencies afloat.

As we learned from the CDC-Kaiser Permanente ACE Study, negative childhood experiences are often kept secret, downplayed, or repressed because of our powerful desire to put such things behind us. Unfortunately, our minds and our brains don’t work that way. Patterns can play out automatically, no matter how hard we try to be original and… Continue reading CALLED HOME: The RoadMap | Why changing family patterns is our most important work
