Both Russians and Americans are angry that President Vladimir Putin has signed a bill banning Americans from adopting Russian children.  Dan and Kim LaPoint, of Portland, adopted a baby girl six years ago.  Kim says that it's wrong to make a political statement with children.  The law also blocks dozens of Russian children now in the process of being adopted by American families from leaving the country. The U.S. is the biggest destination for adopted Russian children. More than 60,000 of them have been taken in by Americans over the past two decades.  There are 740,000 children without parents in Russia.
