9781850788584: Undercover: A Journalist's Story, a Duchess's Mission, a Million Abandoned Children

As I talked to the press it was the thousands of children abandoned in inhumane institutions who were speaking that day, because I am their voice I will never give up being their ‘fog horn’. I will campaign for their freedom; I will make sure they are never forgotten.
―Sarah, Duchess of York

In 2006, award-winning investigative journalist Chris Rogers, smuggled himself into state-run orphanages in Romania and found proof that the appalling treatment of abandoned children continues, long after the fall of communism and despite the country gaining European Union membership. But this was just the start of his work that would spark a global debate over the ban on adoptions of vulnerable children by foreigners. With help from many others, he uncovered the truth about more than a million children held in inhumane conditions and desperate for parents in Romania and Turkey.

While this story is a harsh wake up call, it is also a journey of miraculous hope. If you have ever considered adopting a foreign born child or have a heart for the "least of these," this is a must read.
