Sinopsis: Expose of the privatization of the adoption industry; the indistinguishable line between gray and black market; the scams and rip-offs; exploitation in both domestic and international infant adoption markets where the children are the commodity and prices are set based on quality (i.e. age, race, health)while 143,000 children linger in foster care. Extensively researched and documented inside report of the lack of regulations that allow anyone to call themselves an adoption "professional" and arrange adoptions. Questions whether the money can be removed from adoption and return it to a service which puts the best interest of children first instead of simply allowing anyone who pay - including pedophiles - to "adopt" a child. Goes further than Riben's first book - "shedding light on...The Dark Side of Adoption" (1988) and reveals for the first time Riben's involvement in the notorious Stenberg murder case in NYC.
About the Author: Mirah (aka Marsha) Riben has been researching, writing and speaking about the need to reform, humanize, and de-commercialize American adoption practices since 1971.

Speaking publicly since 1979, Riben has appeared on several national television programs, including Joan Rivers to discuss the Steinberg/Nussbaum murder of their illegally adopted child. She has been keynote speaker for the American Adoption Congress; and has spoken at countless other conferences including Parents of Tomorrow, Adoption Forum, Council on Equal Rights in Adoption, Origins, and Concerned United Birthparents.
