Avslørende dokumentar om Ukrainas surrogati-industri fra ABC-News
This is the moment.
I arrive at the Sonechko Children’s Home, a collection of rundown double-storey brick buildings in a city south east of Kiev, the Ukrainian capital.
I’m here to meet a little girl I’ve been searching for over the past six months.
She’s been abandoned by the very people who paid for her to be born — her American parents.
Now she’s an orphan and has disabilities which require medical attention.
Marina Boyko, the flame-haired nurse who’s cared for the little girl since she was a baby, is taking us to meet her.
The door to the child’s room opens and the emotion hits hard.
My investigation began last year.
“Have any foreigners left a baby behind?” I asked.
It was a simple question and an obvious one.
“An American couple left one last year,” came the answer.
I hung up the phone to my source in Kiev and so began months of work to find a baby born via a surrogate in Ukraine and then abandoned by the American parents.
