Chances For Children Founder Craig Juntunen Urges International Adoption as Part of the Solution in Aftermath of Haiti Earthquake
Date:1/28/2010

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Jan. 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- International adoption must be part of the solution for Haiti's orphaned children in the aftermath of the Jan. 12 earthquake, said Craig Juntunen, international child welfare advocate and the founder of Chances for Children.

"It is time for some child advocacy organizations to stop calling international adoption the 'last resort,'" Juntunen said. "For many of these children, intercountry adoption is the 'best resort.'"

In fact, Juntunen noted, a majority of Americans have a favorable opinion of intercountry adoption and believe that adoptive parents are as likely -- if not more likely -- to be responsible parents than biological parents.

Juntunen announced he will release the full results of a new survey on international adoption Feb. 10. The first of its kind in 12 years, the survey of 1,000 respondents -- conducted by M4 Strategies of Costa Mesa, Calif. -- indicates that many Americans have a higher opinion of intercountry adoption than those espoused by a handful of organizations.

Some estimates indicate Haiti had as many as 380,000 orphans prior to the earthquake. Now, surely, there are many thousands more, Juntunen noted. "My fear is that many of these children will be left behind -- neglected -- by the narrow-minded agendas of special interest groups," he said. "When it comes to the best interests of a child, there is not a one-size-fits-all solution."

In many cases, the best answer for orphaned children is to remain in Haiti if there is a chance they can be re-united with parents or immediate extended family, said Juntunen. That
