Until i find you, disappeared children and coercive adoptions in Guatemala, Rachel Nolan - electronic book

Summary
During Guatemala's decades-long civil war, tens of thousands of children, many of them Indigenous Maya, were coerced or kidnapped from their homes. They became commodities in a booming private adoption business, and most wound up in the United States. Rachel Nolan explores the human toll of a global industry that thrives on exploitation
