Adopted Russian Child Returned!


Seriously? Are we really returning kids now?
Has human life become a commodity that we ship around the world to fulfill momentary needs or desires?

How does something like this even happen? Was the mother not given background check to see if she was suitable to be a parent? Did she get the child illegally? What?

It is just outrageous!

If the child wasn't "mentally ill," as the mother had claimed, before he may be on his way there now. I can only imagine the short and long-term negative effects such abuse can cause a child.


Ok... after getting that off my chest I also want to say something about the parents. The article makes an important point, that adoptive families are many times inheriting children with problems they were not responsible for creating. This story brings light to the orphanages and their treatment of children.

One thing is clear, adoption should be about matching loving parents with unloved children, not about getting rid of children.
