Re: Adoption ban keeps family apart

As much as I understand this family's distress, the Dept of State had been warning for some time that people should reconsider adopting in Nepal due to concerns over where the "abandoned" children were coming from. Nepal is not a party to the Hague Convention, which at least provides some measure of protection. Last spring, a nepali couple were able to find their lost children just before they were to be legally adopted by American citizens. illiterate poor birth parents have rights, too.
