In this Sept. 20, 2004 photo provided by Jane Waldman and Mark Braverman, Waldman holds her future adopted daughter, Elaina, 3, in their first meeting at Specialized City Baby Home orphanage in Arkhangelsk, Russia. Waldman is frustrated that stories of troubled adoptions in the U.S. have gained prominence in Russia, while less attention is paid to the fact that most adoptions of Russian children go well.
