International adoptions begin again
Foreigners are allowed to adopt Nepali children again. A 2007 ban, put in place because of widespread corruption, has now been overturned. Three couples from the USA are the first to adopt children and take them home in recent weeks.
The ban had been put in place because of allegations that children were being sold to the highest bidders. Last year, 63 foreign agencies were allowed to act as intermediaries between potential adopters and the Nepali authorities. Since then, 400 applications have been received.
