Video still of  Carla Clary in the Dan Rather Reports story "Adopted or Abducted?" Part 2, May 1, 2012.

An investigation into claims by women that they were forced to put their babies up for adoption, many with the knowledge and support of Catholic Charities. It was a little-discussed practice for decades, but this special hour-long program removed the veil of secrecy that led to emotional trauma for unwed mothers around the world.

Produced by Wayne Nelson, Elliot Kirschner, T. Sean Herbert, Trisha Sorrels Doyle, Holly Fontana Hladky, and Steve Tyler, the story was nominated for an Emmy in 2013 in the category Outstanding Investigative Journalism in a News Magazine.
