Even though for many adoptees the first line of this article is a no-brainer, it should add to the response to the general idiot who still tries to argue that Madonna’s (still not offically) adopted ‘son’ “David” is ‘better off with her” even though David’s family is alive. Ack.
Hyderabad: A CNN-IBN Special Investigation has revealed that not all children given in adoption are orphans and families are sometimes duped into surrendering their children.
Take for instance 31-year-old Chaya Maria Schupp, who has come from Germany looking for her birth mother from Mangalore.
“My mother was good but she was a single mother and there was no father,” said Chaya.
Chaya spent the first seven years of her life with her Indian mother before a German family adopted her. Chaya’s is still to find her mother.
“In my case there are no records. I cannot believe it,” says Chaya.
