The below are three links about orphanage tourism. They are mostly about Cambodia. But some of the discussion can be applied to most countries (especially ones that are open to adoption and ones that have growing programs in countries with corruption-like Congo). Though I don't agree with everything in all these links, there is a lot that I do agree with and there is a lot that should be discussed and talked about. I agree that children should not live in orphanages. They should be only there for a short time during which time a long term family setting would be found. There are some great guiding questions on these links about what qualifies as a "good orphanage". The second link is very hands on. The third links has some nice thoughts about traveling internationally. I think it's important to remember ways to protect children's rights and respect their dignity in all situations, especially ones where we are showing them love and care. There are lots of answers to these questions and these links bring up some important things to consider.
