    SLIGHTLY OT The Phila. Inquirer has a piece on adoptions of kids orphaned in Africa. The three young girls described in the lede are being homeschooled and adjusting to life in America.

    Mia saw her parents killed by rebels. Michaela’s mother died of starvation. Mariel’s mother developed gangrene from a bullet in her leg. And in war-ravaged Sierra Leone, where they were born, the girls suffered from malaria, food poisoning and malnutrition.

    Only 343 African kids were adopted by Americans last year.
