The parents, independent of each other, dutifully took their boys to a Manhattan office each month for ‘check ups’, During these visits, the boys were given IQ, personality, and behavior tests.

They were interviewed by researchers and filmed playing with toys. Their physical development, fine and large motor skills, and language development was documented. A few times, the psychologists did home visits to see how the boys interacted with their parents and older sisters. It turned out that these evaluations were not the routine part of the adoption process that the parents were led to believe they were. This almost constant monitoring was, in fact, part of a larger, more unbelievable plot.
