These children in an orphanage in Thailand have no hope of being adopted. They must, and do, offer each other the nurturing usually found in a family. This 7-year-old girl is mothering a 3-year-old boy, and both of them will benefit from this childhood experience.

Couples from Taiwan were adopting children here, and taking them home to put to work as slave labor, making garments for export to North America. The Thai Government stopped the practice by prohibiting adoption.
