International adoption has tripled in the past decade, with more than 20,000 children joining American families each year.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
