*Note: At this time does not accept inquiries or payment for adoptable children from religious or social facilitators. We also refuse to endorse any and all agencies, entities, or individuals even if they offer gifts or donations. We cannot in good conscience endorse any accredited OR non-accredited facilitator whose mission is to permanently separate children from their siblings and all blood-relatives OR advertise children falsely as "orphans" or "needy," OR alter their true identity, which prevents children from future contact with all members of their biological families. Due to centuries of past imperialistic proselytizing AND religious endorsements promoting evangelical messages that advocate for "the benefits of white saviorhood," all submissions intending to preach fundamentalist belief-systems that have disrespected and ignored indigenous cultures will not be posted. *We reserve the right not to publish interviews at our discretion.
