I am not sure what makes me feel worse, the fact that race is a factor for adoption fees or that NPR ran with this story.  I think they are both pretty bad.  IDK I guess its a good thing that people are aware that this something that happens, even though it is something that should not happen.

People should not be have to take into account adoption fees when it comes to adopting a child.  All children should be valued equally therefore there should be no difference in the adoption fee that is based on race.
