A little six-year-old girl has been caught up in an international adoption case.
Her mother claims the girl was kidnapped near their home in Guatemala several years ago, according to an interview she gave the Guardian.
After the woman and her husband searched all over town, a local human-rights group finally found the girl on a roster of children available for adoption in the U.S.
They were too late to intervene. The child had already been legally adopted by a couple from Kansas City, Mo.
