Editorial Reviews

They are Romania's children for sale. Castoffs, victims of poverty, corruption, greed. Many for sale to the highest bidder. This investigative follow-up returns to a subject Tom Jarriel first examined in 1990, when "20/20" discovered Romania's abandoned children.

The children were the result of a plan by Communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu to force women to have at least five children for the State. Romania was once known as the Paris of Eastern Europe. But years of Communism under dictator Ceausescu transformed this country into one of the poorest nations in Europe. The average salary is less than $1,000 a year, and increasingly one of the most popular ways to make a living is the baby business. Selling babies to the highest bidder has become a multimillion-dollar enterprise steeped in corruption with the welfare of the children virtually forgotten in the lust for money.
