Podcast with Adoptee Anna Merrick Luster

“Adoption to me in Korea was just like a fantasy…. in America everyone is rich, has a car, a nice house…..so you believe the fantasy.”

What is coming to light is how extreme and pervasive the abuse in adoption was and sadly continues to be.  On the extreme end of deviant behavior, adoption has been used to purchase manual labor and to sexually exploit children; where adoptees were  essentially treated like slaves to do farmwork and chores and/or sexually assaulted as children and teens. I’ve heard this all too often told to me in private by numerous adoptees, but Anna was brave enough to publicly talk about her sexual abuse.
