Here is an interesting link with information on multiple programs

It will take me a while to wade through and comment:

NOTE: This page from the Schuster Institute for Investigative Journalism website offers documentation of and background about serious irregularities in international adoption.

Not much new really, but a good summary I thought.

Latest from the Schuster Institute:

Orphaned or Stolen


These internal State Department documents about adoptions from Nepal point to a different, albeit similar, situation. This batch of FOIAs is made up entirely of official cables that the U.S. Embassy in Kathmandu sent between March 2006 and September 2008 to the Secretary of State's office in Washington, D.C., reporting on its troubling findings about adoptions. As a result, the story we find here is not as in-depth as what we found in the cables, emails, and other internal discussions about Vietnamese adoptions. Yet there is enough here to concern any parent who had hoped to adopt--or already has adopted--from Nepal.

I would think that those pipeline families who have had to respond to RFEs from the State Dept and had their children investigated and gotten a visa issued could be reasonably certain that their child was in the system legitimately.
