Evanston couple’s adoption declared unlawful, baby to return to South Korea

An Evanston couple has lost their bid to keep a 9-month old Korean girl whom they’ve raised since shortly after she was born.
Jinshil and Christopher Duquet’s adoption of Sehwa was declared unlawful after South Korea challenged their case.
The Duquets say they relied on bad legal advice and thought they were participating in a lawful private adoption of the baby.
Baby Sehwa will be sent back to South Korea on Wednesday to be placed with a family there.
