Donald Trump's State Department is Killing International Adoptions

Despite President Trump demanding the State Department stop, State went ahead with a plan to hurt adoptions.

Let's be clear up front, President Trump does not want this and took action early on in his administration to avoid it. …

The Federalist has a very detailed write up on this. The State Department drafted regulations during the Obama Administration that would drastically increase the costs of adoptions, but President Trump rescinded those. Undeterred, the State Department has decided to still demand all the oversight requirements that those rescinded regulations would have imposed.
