They can start by changing laws to give more rights to the 40,000 children growing up in orphanages and institutionalized care here in Japan. Even when parents are unable to care for their own children, they can prevent their child from being adopted or even accepted into a foster care family. I teach English to these dear children every week through my nonprofit, JOEE(dot)jp. They deserve love, justice and a hopeful future. Japan worries about a declining birth rate? Take care of the children who are already here. Please!

Help for infertile couples? Meanwhile there are about 40,000 children living in orphanages or institutionalized care homes in Japan who would love to have a stable and compassionate family to care for them. Single friends and couples whom I know have adopted Japanese children, but the government needs to grant more rights to the children. For a government that claims to value children so much, it needs to do more to help those who have been abused and neglected.
