The families featured in our story worked with Keren Riley of Reunite to help reunite their adopted children with their birth mothers. Riley, a UK citizen living in Uganda since 2010, established the grassroots organization to help provide services to children without parental care, and to help children who have been trafficked or otherwise lost in the system reunite with their Ugandan families.
Riley has set up a GoFundMe page where she is accepting donations.
