Eduardo Mahon, a lawyer from the state of Mato Grosso, wrote on Twitter: "Children parade, for worshipers to see how beautiful, friendly and delightful they are, it seems to me to be an old slave market, where people's teeth and teeth saw the body of Africans making their offer.

& # 39; I don't think it's cool, in fact, I think it's a mess. & # 39;

Guilherme Boulos, a presidential candidate in the recent elections in Brazil, wrote: & # 39; The & # 39; Adoption catwalk in Cuiaba, where children aged four to seventeen are exposed so that future parents can choose them in an incredible perversity.

& # 39; The psychological effects of exposure, expectation, and frustration of these children can be devastating even if the intention was different. & # 39;

And former congresswoman Manuela D & # 39; Avila, posted on Instagram: & # 39; I think this is one of the saddest stories I have ever read.
