Season 5, Episode 20 Family Portrait in Black and White
First Aired: October 14, 2012
"Family Portrait in Black and White" profiles a Ukrainian foster mother of 23 children, including 16 that are the offspring of Ukrainian girls and African exchange students. She takes in the biracial babies from orphanages so that, as they grow, they have a ready-made support network. That support may well be necessary, too: interracial relationships and children are frowned upon in Ukraine, where neo-Nazis—several of whom are interviewed—are known for attacking dark-skinned individuals.
