Most international families that look to adopt a child from an orphanage in China expect that everything is legal and that the child that they are actually adopting is an orphan. However, several investigations show that some of these children have been forcibly taken from their parents and then sold to orphanages. These orphanages then arranged for international adoptions of the children with families from around the globe, including the United States.
The article from Time.com says that some of the biological parents have been looking for their children for years. The Chinese government says that they are investigating to find out about these kidnappings and foreign adoptions. What they will find out and what new policies they may put into place is left to be seen.
