Russian President Vladimir Putin says he will sign a law banning Americans from adopting Russian children. The new policy, which threatens 1,500 pending adoptions, comes in response to a U.S. law which seeks to punish Russian human rights violators. We talk with a Bay Area adoption advocate about Russia's action.

Guests:

Andrea Stawitcke, executive director of Bay Area Adoption Services, a parent-led, nonprofit, international adoption agency

Fiona Hill, director of the Center on the Unites States and Europe, senior fellow in the foreign policy program at the Brookings Institution an co-author of the forthcoming book, "Mr. Putin: Operative in the Kremlin"

Julia Rowlee, senior at Fremont High School in Sunnyvale; she was adopted at age 6 from Kaliningrad, Russia
