There are added costs and hassles to international adoptions, but also benefits. For one thing, it's final. The birth mom isn't going to get out of prison/rehab five years down the line, or simply change her mind, and show up at your door with a court order demanding to reengage with her child.
The bias against domestic interracial adoptions is a pet peeve. The Indian tribes have been notoriously hostile to adopting kids off the reservations. Back when we were in process, the National Association of Black Social Workers was also kicking up a fuss, on the grounds that black kids should be raised culturally black, whatever that is supposed to mean. Racial resentments aside, the NABSW had a vested interest in keeping kids in foster care, as opposed to finding them permanent homes. Once again, as with the teachers unions, we see a corrupt organization placing adult jobs over kids' best interests. The law has since been changed so that race is not supposed to be a factor in adoptions (the tribes may be an exception; I don't know). How much informal pressure against domestic interracial adoption still exists, I don't know.
P.S. Does anyone know how to get rid of these irritating advertising links? They are "powered by Freeworks," but I don't see freeworks in "all programs." I don't know where it is hiding. My kids use this computer so it is likely something they picked up chasing kids games.
Get a new computer and threaten to get new kids. That should solve the problem ;)
