New Regulations Leave Many Undeterred

Despite new laws, China still an adoption magnet
China has been the No. 1 choice for U.S. foreign adoptions for the past six years, according to the U.S. State Department. Beijing says four-fifths of foreign adoptions in the past decade involved American families...

But the regulations have been criticised in the United States, where the divorce rate is about six times that of China and where thousands of single mothers have already provided homes for Chinese babies.

In 2006, Americans adopted 6,493 children from China, the largest number of any country, while in the past 21 years U.S. parents have adopted 55,446 Chinese children.
