NEW ORLEANS (AP) — U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu is promoting a documentary about international adoption.

The Louisiana Democrat is the mother of two adopted children and the wife of a man adopted from overseas. She says many American families are willing to open their hearts and homes to children needing families all over the world, but the international adoption system "is broken and failing."

Landrieu introduced the film titled Stuck in the New Orleans suburb of Harahan on Monday night. She says it's about overseas children who are "stuck in orphanages, stuck in a system that doesn't work."

The film is narrated by Emmy and Golden Globe winning actress Mariska Hargitay and produced by Craig Juntunen. It's on a 60-city tour that began last month and is scheduled to wrap mid-May.
