It is the mission of PEAR to provide a voice for prospective and adoptive parents. Our goal is to ensure that all families are provided:
- a system that is transparent, ethical, economical, and respects the rights of families of origin, the laws of governments involved, the adoptive and prospective adoptive parents, and most importantly the children;
- a choice of agencies that operate legally, ethically, responsibly and in the interest of the adults and children they serve;
- access to support services and resources post adoption;
- official representation before the bodies that govern and oversee adoption providers. Anyone worldwide, who shares in the common goal for which Parents for Ethical Adoption Reform (PEAR) was created, may become a member.
