"To Adopt A Child," an investigation on adoptions in Nepal by producers Habiba Nosheen and Lisa Desai, airs Friday, May 6 on PBS: Need To Know.

Recently, the US State department suspended adoptions of orphaned Nepalese children, citing numerous examples of unreliable and potentially fraudulent documents. This report follows the bitter-sweet journey of American families who find themselves caught between two governments as they fight to bring home their adopted children.
