In this photo taken Sunday, Oct. 7, 2012, Gregoria Herminia Contreras, 35, poses for a photo with her husband Filadelfo Julian Ramos, in Guatemala City. Contreras was four years old when she was separated from her parents by a Salvadoran soldier, who then registered her under a new name and forcibly adopted her during the country's civil war. The non-governmental agency Pro Búsqueda and the National Search Commission for Missing Children say they have documented at least ten cases of missing children who were abducted by Salvadoran military to raise as their own or to offer them for adoption in exchange for money. The agencies believe case numbers would be much higher if the military disclosed their national security archives.
