Support adoptees by supporting family-based care, not orphanages

amazing speech. interesting details:

* approx 80% of children in orphanages are not orphans
* children raised in orphanages are 500x more likely to commit suicide, and 40x more likely to have a criminal record.
* even assuming the very best orphanage, these children re-experience the cycle of abandonment every 8 hours when workers go off-shift

With a happy ending involving family-based care.

Cambodia won’t be faced with the false dilemma of leaving kids in orphanages vs shipping them out to other countries.  Do watch the whole thing.
