A baby is abandoned at the 4077th and right away, the surgeons and staff become surrogate fathers and mothers. But an army surgical hospital is no place for a baby, so Hawkeye and B.J. appeal to the Army to try and send the baby to an orphanage. It was out of the question because the baby is half Korean, half American, and that is hated among full Koreans. Hawkeye, B.J., Colonel Potter and Charles try their best, but cannot have the baby adopted by Koreans and they cannot send the baby home to the states. Father Mulcahy, however, has an idea that might work... Written by <Explorerds6789>

A Tragic Issue That Continues to Today
19 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The gang in the swamp are awakened by the sound of a baby crying. It turns out that a a little girl infant has been abandoned by its mother, given to the doctors to raise. The problem is that it is a mixed race baby, the product of an American soldier and a Korean mother. It turns out that these children are often considered anathema, even being killed or sold into prostitution. The sad fact is that no matter who the camp members go to, their is no one to help them. Even the children in the orphanage will eventually turn on her. Hawkeye and Charles even go to the U.S. Embassy. They get caught up in the nets of bureaucracy and indifference. This episode is one of the more real ones in the MASH canon.
