WHEREAS, there are many Amerasian children abandoned by their American
fathers and rejected in their Asian homelands; and
WHEREAS, we in the affluent West, especially in the United States, have a
clear responsibility to these children; and
WHEREAS, children grow rapidly and the years between birth and adulthood are
few, dictating immediate action; and
WHEREAS, the future of the world depends largely on the quality of life
experienced by children; and
WHEREAS, we would offer Amerasian children the hope of a better future;
BE IT RESOLVED: That the 1983 General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist
Association urges the Congress of the United States to provide funds immediately
for the transportation and support of Amerasian petitioners for immigration and
to facilitate the adoption of Amerasian children into American homes; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED: That this Assembly urges member societies to offer
support to families who adopt Amerasian children.
