Korean orphans languish in system as tradition, new laws make adoption difficult

At around 1:30 p.m., Jae Min’s mother carried him up the worn green steps of Jusarang Community Church on a steep hillside on the outskirts of Seoul. Jae Min was screeching. His mother clutched him tightly to her chest to shield him from the brisk late winter air.

 She opened the metal hatch built into the wall of the church. The lone mother gently laid her newborn in the temperature-controlled box like hundreds of desperate and fearful single mothers before her. Inscribed in Korean, below the handle of the hatch was a scripture from Psalm 27:10: “For my father and mother have forsaken me, but the Lord will take me in.”

Records reveal years of child abuse in former Minnesota family driven over cliff in California

Oregon child welfare officials knew in July 2013 that Jennifer Hart - who last month drove her wife and six adopted children off a California cliff into the ocean - had already faced abuse allegations in Minnesota, according to records from their investigation released Monday, April 23.

They knew that when the family previously lived in Alexandria in west-central Minnesota, Hart allegedly deprived them of food and left them to rummage through trash for something to eat at school. School officials eventually stopped telling the Hart parents when their children took food from other students so that the children wouldn't be punished, records released to The Washington Post show.
