    True. I also believe these people thought they were doing the right thing. Desperate times require desperate measures. However, too many evil-doers are hunting for children. They have to crack down on everyone. It just seems like it's getting worse every day.

    I heard on the news that these people got permission from the Head clergyman at the orphanages and had detailed lists of the children's names and parantage etc...they THOUGHT they had permission to do what they were doing and THOUGHT they would need to fill out the detailed government papers at the border? So, Do Gooders, imo and just a mixup.

    Hopefully that's what happened Care and these people are not prosecuted. It's just heartbreaking. My son wanted to go there in March with a group from his school. It's far too dangerous. I told him maybe next year.

    They probably got caught because they weren't trying to hide what they were doing thinking they were doing the right thing and they weren't paying off the cops. The ones who are truly trying to traffic children know how to do it under the radar and would have paid off the cops well in advance.
