The Case of the Forder Family

Thanks Amy for emailing about this ongoing story of a woman who's awaiting trial for the mysterious death of her young son in Oregon, USA. The connection to Liberia is that she and her husband moved here shortly after the kid's death. She was arrested when she returned to Oregon for medical treatment, and the husband is still here, supposedly. The couple, who have been foster parents in the past, reportedly work as Christian missionaries, and according to this detailed story from August, they have also adopted Liberian triplets. This blogger has lots of details.

These people are innocent until proven guilty. But it makes you wonder how easy it is for people to adopt in a developing country, and how much monitoring is done afterward. Anybody have experience with the adoption procedures for foreigners in Liberia?
