The underground child exchange

An investigation by Reuters this week showed there is a growing pattern of so-called 're-homing' happening in America. That's where adoptive parents get rid of unwanted children by offering them up online -- often in plain sight on websites like Facebook. Reuters found there are no federal laws restricting the practice of non-legalized adoption, although states may treat it differently.

Megan Twohey, one of the reporters of the investigation, joins Marketplace Tech host Ben Johnson to discuss.
