The practice of adopting across borders accelerated dramatically 50 years ago with Korean War orphans. The experiences of those children affected the way families approach international adoption today, fueling a new effort to help adopted children connect with their birth culture. This documentary explores those stories, and travels with a family to Guatemala to visit a child¿s biological mother. "Finding Home" also discusses a new risk for families adopting from abroad: unscrupulous operators using the Internet to prey on parents longing for a child.
Producers: Sasha Aslanian, Ellen Guettler, and Michael Montgomery
