Needy Parents?!

OK, I didn't get past the first paragraph of this article about international adoption:

Adopting a child especially through international adoption process is not an easy decision to take. Both the needy parents and the adoption agency have to look after various factors . . . .
I don't think the author intended sarcastic social commentary about the fact that adoption these days isn't so much about finding families for needy children, but is instead about finding children for needy parents. . . .

What's that saying?  Many a truth is said . . . by accident?!

Reading this article reminded me a lot of reading something written by one of my ESL students. There were grammatical mistakes and a lot of awkward wording. In addition, some of her "facts" about international adoption were simply untrue. For example, we are not provided a list of children to choose from with all of their information. I don't know who this woman is, but she is certainly no adoption expert.

LOL... your attention to detail never ceases to amaze me.

Also, the author states "The adoption agency is concerned whether the child will be comfortable in the family and the community or not. Also, they have to consider the points that the child may face in the society in future."
Uhhhhh... really? I'd say Artyom and many others might disagree on this point. Not that there aren't attentive agencies out there, but obviously there are others who just want to get the deal done.
