Nepal - Kaushal and Karuna, children of Rajan Kumar Nepali and wife Maya

2009 Jun 1

Rajun and Maya placed their 6-yo son and 3-yo daughter in an orphanage for temporary care. When they returned to pick them up, they discovered both children's names were changed: Kaushal and Karuna to Dharma and Ahimsa. The children's paperwork was being readied for intercountry adoption. Orphanage director Sabitri Basnet, would only return their son Kaushal. Several months later, Karuna was in the custody of a US family for adoption. The child was eventually returned to the orphanage, and then to her parents.
