Diego's Story, Part 1: Back to Guatemala

Most children adopted into U.S. homes from abroad never learn much about their birth families. But Laurie Stern and Dan Luke want their adopted son Diego to know his roots.

American RadioWorks producer Ellen Guettler profiles the family's most recent trip to Guatemala, where Diego connected with his birth culture -- but would also learn a painful family secret.
