Well I thought, maybe this is okay. Families that adopt hard to place children need all the help they can get. But then I saw this: Jockey offers best-in-class adoption benefits to employees. The adoption process can be costly and time-intensive. At Jockey, we're proud to provide an extensive adoption benefits package to our employees including a $10,000 stipend per child each year and resource and referral services."(Emphasis added.)
Jockey, headquartered in Kenosha, Wisconsin, is a family-owned business. CEO Debra S. Waller succeeded her mother as CEO. Her ties to adoption go deep. She was adopted as an infant, is a 2014 Angel in Adoption honoree by the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute, and serves on the Board of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.
Back to my purchase --I didn't really need more bras but they were on sale and I had a $10 off coupon. I cancelled the order and tossed the coupon. No way will I support the break up of families and the Tea Party--Jane.

Actually to blow your mind: The stories by different Korean adoptees in this book are essential to understanding the culture shock of being transported to a new, strange culture for the purpose of adoption.

"A fantastic collection of stories that are both fascinating and helpful for those who wonder what it's like to be adopted and are interested in truly inspiring (and some tragic) stories....The question I have is, if these children are truly not orphans in the first place...well, is anyone suspicious of child trafficking for adoption purposes?"--at Amazon
