9/02/2006Ethical Agency List
We all have our opinions on which agencies are ethical and doing their job in a solid and reputable way. I'm no exception.
So...in true American style, here is my list of agencies* (in no specific order) that I currently consider to be ethical. This may change as time goes on and new information becomes available:
Pearl S. Buck
Children's Hope International
Vietnamese Orphan Relief Fund
Families Through International Adoption
If you have questions about an agency on the list or that is licensed but not on the list, feel free to email me and I will try to respond as soon as possible with as much info as I currently have.
*An ethical agency is not necessarily an agency with good customer service, a good bedside manner, a lot of hand-holding, etc. These agencies are also not, by default, agencies I would recommend to people but they are definitely agencies I consider, at this time, to be ethical. An important first step in researching agencies.
**no, I won't disclose the list but you know who you are!!
***these agencies, it should be noted, are currently *untested* under the new system but have had good programs in other countries and no complaints to date.
