Peru - Céline Giraud - "Rayon de soleil" case.
Céline Giraud, a Frenchwoman born in Peru, was adopted by French parents when she was 16 days old through the NGO, Rayon de Soleil de l'Enfant Étranger. Up to 24 years, she believed that her biological parents had abandoned her for lack of means to raise her. But by finding her birth family in 2004, she discovered that she was stolen from her parents and 25 other Peruvian children adopted in France, Switzerland and Holland in the early 80s, were also stolen from their parents. Her story was written by the French journalist Emily Trevert in her book.
Number of children: 26
Organizations: Rayon de Soleil de l'Enfant Etranger
