This is sad. Wrongly interpreted it puts a bad spin on international adoption. Correctly interpreted it puts a bad spin on the 1 to 2-child policy. People are desperate in China to have children and are banned by the government who wishes to control aspects of the individual lives. Orphanages who have benefited by the IA, are not as willing to help local couples adopt due to more money on the IA front, and some rural folks take to buying babies without even trying the orphanages first to adopt, increasing the human trafficking aspect.
This practice is as old as China itself in the selling baby girls for future brides to families with no other help. The devaluing of human life reducing it to a commodity reinforces the old belief systems that puts a premium on sons. Also, families wanting sons to help in old age affects the trade too. Yes sons are still prized. Things are changing slowly, but sometimes it seems the more things change the more they stay the same.
