    It sucks, but sometimes parents-- birth or adoptive-- just can't raise their children and they need to let someone else step up.
    The adoption system would not make you keep your kids though. They simply screen anyone you want to raise them so that those kids go to a suitable home.

    Devil's Advocate:

    What if the parent figures out that they're just a crappy terrible parent, and wants the kid to have at least a chance at a better upbringing?

    Is it the "re-homing" in general we are disputing, or the lack of court approval?
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Agreed but what if there is a $$ component here? People that are qualified adopting and then selling the child to someone that is not qualified (in the courts' eyes).

    Are there records of this happening? (Sorry havent read entire thread yet).

    And is there legal recognition? There are times when schools, medical facilities, the state, etc require parental or legal guardian consent.

    I mean, not much stops parents from letting their kid live with someone else physically. Esp if not under scrutiny by the state from prior cause.

    No, that shouldn't be allowed to happen. If the state has an interest in making sure adopted kids are going to appropriate families (and it absolutely should), then that interest shouldn't stop just because the kid has already been adopted once.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
