Here's the description on the justice talking website:
The controversy surrounding Madonna's adoption of a child from Malawi made a splash in the headlines. At the same time, it's becoming more difficult for American couples to adopt children from China, Russia and Guatemala. By 2008, the U.S. will join the Hague Convention on Intercountry Adoption, an international treaty which will govern the adoption process across national boundaries. Join us on this edition of Justice Talking as we look at international adoptions: how this new treaty will affect adoptions worldwide and what can be done to help children around the world looking for families.
