Siberian Adoption Story

Jon Alpert
SIBERIAN ADOPTION STORY follows two American families as they go through the process of adopting babies from Russia. While China tops the list for the number of international adoptions by U.S. parents, Russia is a close second, with more than 4,200 children?mostly infants?adopted by Americans in 2001 alone. Amy and Brett Turner of Fort Myers, Florida, have two sons already, but they desperately want a daughter and have opted for adoption after enduring the heartbreak of multiple miscarriages. Salli Sobsey, a single parent in Montclair, Virginia, yearned for years to have a daughter after raising her two sons. Both families make two trips to Siberia to meet their prospective adoptive daughters, and each faces a challenging moment when a crucial decision must be made.
