This episode's discussion of re-homing was inspired by an investigative report by Reuters. The news outlet analyzed 5,029 posts over a five-year period from a message board for the Yahoo group, “Adopting-from-Disruption.” On average, a child was advertised for re-homing once a week. Most of the advertised children ranged in age from 6 to 14 and had been adopted from abroad. Yahoo has since shut down the group.
