Adoption Fromm Abroad: A Study of the Adjustment of Forty-Five Related Nominated Children and Forty Non-related Nominated Children, Placed and Supervised by the Angel Guardian Home, Brooklyn, New York, 1951 – 1961
The United States has probably been the most fortunate country in the world. She has known years of progress along with years of plenty. She has been blessed with great leaders, spiritual, political, and intellectual. It is true that she has felt the hardships of war and depression but after these troublesome years she has been visited by peace and prosperity. Other countries and other people have been less fortunate. They, too, have gone through periods of war and depression and in addition have felt the blows of famine, poverty and religious persecution. Due to circumstances beyond their control, these people have never known the true meaning of peace and prosperity. The actual fighting has ceased, but the cold war continues to bring pain and heartaches to millions of people the world over. They look to America for alleviation of some of this suffering. They look to America for hope in a future. The United States recognized her responsibility to help the weaker nations and has done her share in trying to lift their burdens. However, today we are well aware that serious problems still have to be solved for millions throughout the world. Poverty, hunger, disease and homelessness are the basis of unrest among two-thirds of the world's population and represent a constant invitation to rebellion. It is estimated, of the forty million people who were displaced by the war and its after effects, there are still twenty million persons who are homeless.
