How to Help Orphans to Adapt to Life Outside – Notable quote: “There are no tracking mechanisms for the 20,000 young adults leaving orphanages every year, and statistics suggest only about 10 percent successfully adapt to normal life. Alcoholism, drug addiction, criminality and suicide take the rest.” A human tragedy. Yet, when a mid-Iowa group called Camp Hope–dedicated to helping older Russian orphans find Forever Families–posted more or less the same info on their website, it angered certain Russian authorities. These same authories stopped adoptions leaving these kids with a bleak future–and their American families broken-hearted and confused.
