In December 2012, Moscow passed a law banning U.S. citizens from adopting Russian children. Russian officials say that their efforts to promote domestic adoptions instead of foreign ones have paid off, citing falling numbers at state-run orphanages. But some family advocates say the numbers are far from clear, and warn that the ban has only hurt countless orphans and potential parents. (Melani Bachina, RFE/RL's Russian Service)
