Evanston couple suffers setback in adoption saga

A setback today for Evanston couple trying to keep a baby they brought home from South Korea.

A federal judge today terminated an order that gave possession of 7-month-old Sehwa to Christopher and Jinshil Duquet.

The Office of Refugee Resettlement now has control over Sehwa while her immigration status is determined.

The South Korean government says the Duquets did not go through proper channels and wants the girl returned.

The Duquets want to formally adopt the child.
