When I moved to Scotland, one of the differences to Denmark I noticed was the lack of adoptive children from other continents. Lots of Danish parents have kids of Korean, African, Chinese or Indian origin, but I never saw any here. I discussed it in the car with Phyllis this morning, and it turns out that it used to be common, but that the practice was abandoned in the mid-70s because of concerns that white parents couldn’t raise kids of other cultures. Interestingly, it only seemed to get common in Denmark around the same time – there are almost no people my age or older with that background, but lots that are younger than me. So it seems Denmark took over where the UK left.
