INTERNET TWINS TO RETURN TO UNITED STATES

    The couple from north Wales who adopted baby girl twins over the
    internet have lost their bid to keep the children.

    A high court judge ruled that the twins have to be returned to
    Missouri in the United States, where foster carers will look after
    them while a court decides if they should be returned to their
    natural mother.

    Alan and Judith Kilshaw paid more than £8,000 to adopt the
    twins, Belinda and Kimberley who are nearly nine months’ old, from
    an adoption agency in America after contact had been made over the
    web.

    Flintshire social services obtained a court order to take the
    twins into care, and they were cared for by foster parents while
    the legal arguments were made in court.
