Hurray for economic bad times!

No comment, other than to say this is the 'loswest' of the lows

China’s Loss Could be Sweden’s Gain

Adopting a Chinese baby is the dream of many Swedes

The Swedish Society for International Child Welfare says that many Swedes are hoping that an economic crisis in China will make it easier to adopt Chinese babies.

Last year 800 children from outside the Nordic region were adopted into Sweden - but this is the loswest figure in 38 years and the figure for 2008 is expected to be even lower.

Part of the reason is that adoptions from China, which have dominated the statistics in the last ten years, have decreased due to economic growth in China and the rest of Asia.

Now Swedish couples and singles eager to adopt are calling the Swedish Society for International Child Welfare, also known as Adoptioncentrum and asking whether bad times will mean more available babies.

But for Swedes who lose their jobs, their local authority may well revoke their adoption permit.
