Putting a child up for adoption is one of life's most wrenching decisions. And it doesn't just affect the child or the birth parents who decide they cannot raise the baby . The decision has a profound impact on extended family as well.
"Baby Rescue" is a story from Kenya, where sexual vilence has become all too common. The infants that resulted from an instance of incest are usually put up for an adoption but in many cases they are left in the fields to die. CBC's Erica Johnson travelled to Kenya and produced a documentary about what's being done to save as many infants as possible.
