Yes you read right. These Dutch diplomats adopted a baby of South Korean origin when she was 4 months old. After 7 years they placed her in foster care in Hong Kong, saying that she wasn't able to bond with them http://rokdrop.com/2007/12/14/could-not-adapt-to-dutch-culture/ It appears from the above article that when the couple had a biological child, they gave her up. This was after 7 years in their home. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/asia-pacific/7144553.stm Isn't this heartbreaking for the child? A nanny who worked at the house said the child was not treated like a real daughter and that she was unusually quiet. I hope that foreign adoptions in general won't be jeopardised because of this.

Maybe Brad and Angelina will step in. Poor child..what a horrible thing to have two families give you away. I hope all works out for her.
