Made for pretty one day
The aim: the older children visible”, should be made”; because it is difficult to find a family or an orphanage. the children and young people were dressing for a day for the catwalk, make-up and dressed-up in what was otherwise granted.
Indignation in the network
The viewers of the spectacle were indignant. they compared the event with the title “adoption on the catwalk” with slaves or livestock auctions. “are animals or slaves sold?”, a facebook user asked. “shameful, it is like a display of children in the form of a cattle market,” wrote another user. the pictures of the fashion show are no longer found in the social networks.
A sort of slave-trade fair
The brazilian lawyer eduardo mahon showed to the newspaper muvuca popular shocked: “the potential adoptive parents can see how nice, friendly and easy going, the kids on the catwalk are, it seems like a old slave fair that has the teeth and the body of the people, in order to negotiate about the bid,” he told the newspaper.
Criticism on the part of the government

such As Cinderella
Nevertheless, we find the argument, the children were allowed to make for pretty one day, to go on the catwalk, but it still sounds a little cinderella who was allowed to go once in your life to the king’s ball.
Security can also be reached through targeted campaigns in the social networks, more children’s parents to find loving adoptive.
A family that decides to adopt this is at least not spontaneously, because it has seen a child like a piece of clothing on the catwalk, and then to the acquisition of decide.

Zika virus: how it feels to be pregnant in brazil?
Sophia from munich is pregnant with her first child and lives in brazil, where the zika virus is rampant. we asked how you deal with the threat.
Sophia martins do rio moreira is happily married, writes with her friend, jacqueline the mum-blog “style. pray. love.” and you expected in the summer of their first, longed-for child.
So everything is actually perfect, but sophia lives in rio de janeiro. and brazil is the country that is affected the most by the zika virus, the pathogen that is transmitted by mosquitoes and can probably cause unborn children to microcephaly, a malformation of the skull.
The WHO has to call because of the rapid spread of Zika Virus’ health emergency, Pregnant women are advised not to travel in the affected areas.
How do you feel, if you will, of all things, this is the place for the first time to get pregnant? about mom has spoken-editor michèle rothenberg with the 29-year-old munich native.
Sophia, you were already pregnant when you from the outbreak of zika virus did you learn?
Yes, i was. i only learned a month later, in december, of the virus. and that it seems to be far more than a harmless viral infection, which have a significant impact on unborn babies can have.
If you already knew – it would have your family planning?
How big is your fear – are you worried about your baby?
If you want to stay in brazil?
My desire is anyway, and i would feel at home in germany, of course, more comfortable. the zika virus was added to by strengthening and influenced the decision also. but if i came to germany, i would be separated from my husband for at least four months. he is a english teacher here in rio de janeiro and can’t make his school classes in the middle of the school year. in addition, he would, perhaps, not in time for the birth of our baby in germany.
How your environment reacted to your pregnancy?
In principle, have been looking forward to all that we are expecting a baby. for me, it is also the first child. we are very happy and don’t let the worry affect. nevertheless, especially my family from germany has responded worried, because in europe, zika virus seems to dominate the media. so my family and friends have been informed about all the possibilities, how i can come back, i find it a very loving and sweet.
What does your doctor do this?
How to protect you trying to you? this is all about?
Unfortunately, we are hearing that most of the zika virus cases occur in the poor regions, the favelas. there are many unwanted water reserves, for example, in tires or tons, pots, buckets. these are optimal breeding sites for the mosquitoes. at home, we have equipped our apartment with the fragrance plugs against insects and up to us in the 22. stock make it the mosquitoes anyway rare.
How to read, increases the number of abortions in brazil. that would be something you would after a trick, think? i’ve heard nothing yet. abortions are banned in brazil. but perhaps the real number of illegal abortions in brazil are currently in a higher range than usual.after a trick, i would have an abortion is never easy so my baby. there are also infected mothers, the zika-not has had a virus harmful to the unborn out of it. according to my doctor you can the microcephaly for the baby, at the earliest, from the 21. week of pregnancy find.for me personally, the question is not, in principle – but it’s up to each mom in your heart and for yourself and your baby.
How the state of emergency makes itself felt in everyday life?
How other pregnant women to go out of your circle with the crisis?
Do you think that the government and authorities are responding correctly to the emergency?
