Samoan Adoption Scandal
December 13th, 2009
CBS News will present, “The Lost Children,” a “48 Hours” special, on Dec. 12, 2009 – the culmination of a two-year investigation by “48 Hours” into one of the largest foreign adoption scams in U.S. history.
Anchored by “48 Hours” correspondent Maureen Maher, who herself was adopted, “The Lost Children” profiles three families – Patti Sawyer, Mike and Kari Nyberg, and Elizabeth and Gary Muenzler – who adopted children from the South Pacific island of Samoa through the Utah-based Focus On Children adoption agency, only to face a heartbreaking decision years later.
