I recognize that the concern about child trafficking is legitimate, but my experience in Nepal was that consulate staff always assumed corruption or some other illegitimate practice on the part of the Nepali people involved in the adoption process at all levels. In fact, there were always good explanations for Nepalis who did not fit consulate expectations but the staff never bothered to understand circumstances from the perspective of the individual Nepali. They often did not share their motivations to Americans until they had developed a relationship of trust. They also were so busy trying to manage their lives that they could not always respond promptly to consulate requests. Consulate staff then assumed some nefarious motive, rather than consider actual circumstances. I was lucky. My case was completed just 3 weeks before adoptions were closed, but consulate staff already demonstrated an indifference and unwillingness to understand the complexity of Nepali circumstances.
