(USA Today) — A new award-winning documentary may provide our political class with its last best chance to prove a bi-partisan solution for the common good on a vitally important issue is still possible.

It’s only fitting the film is called Stuck, because that’s exactly how we feel whenever a politician in either party says, “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” The movie depicts the plight of the estimated tens of millions of orphans essentially stranded in third world countries, where all too often their only options are deliverance via international adoption or becoming another statistic whose life ends tragically.

Except because of excessive bureaucratic red tape both in our own state department and at the United Nations, Stuck shows how international adoption is becoming an increasingly unlikely salvation for these children.
