"There was confusing news out of Russia today over US adoptions of Russian children. A foreign ministry spokesman in Moscow told reporters that adoptions were on hold. Later, the State Department and the Russian ministry that oversees adoptions said that was not the case. These developments come after a Tennessee woman sent her adopted seven-year-old son on a one-way flight back to Moscow by himself."
Thus begins an NPR interview with Children's Hope International's Cory Barron. Yesterday our outreach and development director discussed the confusion and how news like this affects adopting families.
