International kidnap-to-adoption ring uncovered

Date: 2009-03-09

An investigative journalist working in Chennai, India has uncovered a massive kidnap-to-adoption ring. Scott Carney followed the story of one child named Sabash who was kidnapped from a slum in Chennai when he was just two years old, and then taken to an orphanage where he was sold to an adoptive family in the United States. It’s unclear just how far international law goes in terms of protecting children who have been kidnapped and sold into adoption – and in the U.S., the FBI has done little follow-up on the case. Aura Bogado spoke with Scott Carney, whose feature in Mother Jones is titled “Meet the Parents: the Dark Side of Overseas Adoption”
