ImageWord travels quickly in the adoption community, and so you have probably already heard of the documentary STUCK. This documentary highlights the difficulties within the international adoption process. It discusses the dire need for orphans to be adopted, the often horrendous condition of orphanages, and the “hoops” that adoptive families have to jump through in order to adopt these children.

The fact is that the number of children being adopted internationally has dropped signigicantly in the last five years. According to the U.S. Department of State, in 2004, almost 23,000 children were adopted internationally by U.S. families. After a consistent decline, in 2011, that number had dwindled to 9,000, with the number of orphans in our world constantly rising.

This documentary looks into the overall system, and discusses changes that must be made in order for these children to find their way home. The documentary is being shown around the country, and in April will be in our area. On Friday, April, 26th, at 7:00 pm in Chicago, the film will be shown. The following day, the film will be shown in Indianapolis at 7:00 pm.
