Nepal's government is once again allowing foreign nationals to adopt children from the country. Adoptions were halted last year after allegations of corruption and reports that children were being sold off. A number of foreign adoption agencies will now be allowed to process requests from prospective parents in countries including the US, Germany and Canada. The countries were chosen because of their good education and health care systems, a Nepali official said. (BBC)
