Excerpt from Unicef Report - see page 41

In 2004, the Samay National weekly reported that Nirmala, a widow and mother of seven children had entrusted all her children to a child centre. Three of the children had been sent abroad for adoption to three different families without her consent. Nirmala wants justice: “I only want my children back!”
