NPR's Wendy Kaufman reports on new Russian regulations on foreign adoptions. The new rules that went into effect last month, require foreign adoption agencies be accredited by the Russian government. In addition, they must be non-profit with a track record of foreign adoptions. And families who adopt Russian children must also file an increased number of reports to the Russian government detailing the child's growth and development.
