Lori Carangelo is retired from administrative positions with environmental and job creation projects in Santa Barbara and Palm Desert, California. Lori has authored over 600 published articles and more than 20 unique non-fiction adoption-themed and "true crime" books. Lori and her national volunteer network, Americans For Open Records (AmFOR), enabled thousands of adoptees to connect with their unknown birth families and the stories gleaned enabled her to serve as Data Source to the United Nations Rights of the Child Project. Her "true crime" books explain "WHY" they did it from trial transcripts, and the killers' own words, and also give a voice to the wrongfully convicted.

“The Nebraska Supreme Court agreed with Randolph Reeves, who was scheduled  to be executed   1-11-99.  His Omaha Tribe  filed a brief claiming Reeves was  "emotionally damaged" when the State of Nebraska took him from his reservation parents at age 3, and that, because of the removal, the State is "the party to blame" for Reeves' actions.”
Lori Carangelo, CHOSEN CHILDREN 2016: People as Commodities in America's Failed Multi-Billion Dollar Foster Care, Adoption and Prison Industries

“One must ask why government is so reluctant to publish factual data on children in its care.  Unlike the single issue anti-Vietnam War protesters of the 1960s, the more recent “Occupy Wall Street” protesters on the streets and on college campuses nationwide have been protesting not only the larger issue of "corporate greed" and the "buying of Congress," but also resulting issues of a bleeding economy such as the rising cost of tuition, insurmountable student debt, biased economics classes and 15%  unemployment. There has never  been mass protesting  against profits outweighing the needs of the children and adults trapped in America’s failed Foster Care, Adoption and Prison systems  --  in part because each of these complex industries separate, isolate  and effectively censor and brainwash its victims under color of state confidentiality laws. ”
Lori Carangelo, CHOSEN CHILDREN 2016: People as Commodities in America's Failed Multi-Billion Dollar Foster Care, Adoption and Prison Industries

“What I resent most about the foster care system is that workers never made any genuine effort to reunite me with my family or at least help me to develop a relationship. I feel like I haven't been at home for 5 years because home to me was a little rundown farmhouse where I lived with my father and my brother. If child welfare systems are really in the business for the welfare of children, then my only advice would be to treat them as you would treat your own children.”
