Mother Teresa 26 August 1910 - 5 September 1997 Born: Anjezë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu Was a big player adopting out children in India and according to one source charged 120,000 INR ($1,760) (npr.org) for each child she adopted out. Was the fee exorbitant? When a Lawyer makes about INR60,000 per year in India. It is a lot but not without good reason. Here's why:
When a child is worthless, in some parts of the world, when children are not fed, clothed, housed, nor loved. Life is cheap. What's the solution? Give value to a child, make any prospective parent think twice about neglecting or not caring for the child they are adopting, let alone loving the child.
So was Mother Teresa greedy? No, were her prices high yes, but not without good reason.
