Cambodia - Main Dim's son aka Sam

Main Dim placed her month old son with Chea Kim to be taken to an orphanage for temporary care. She believed she would get him back when her situation improved.He was adopted without her knowledge.

The adoptive mother, Carol Raushenberger was told by the orphanage that the boy had been relinquished by a mother with 5 other children, but the official paperwork listed the parents as unknown. Carol was able to locate the birthmother and regularly sent photos, only to learn the truth years later, that Main Dim did not mean for her son to be adopted.
