    Yes, there are thousands and thousands of childless Americans who are hoping to adopt from South America, China...and Russia.

    A woman in Tennessee took her 7-year-old Russian boy, put him on a plane alone with a note pinned to him, saying (in English) "she didn't want him anymore."

    Russia is pissed and is now thinking about halting all adoptings to the USA. Who can blame them?

    Is this about some stupid, heartless woman in Tennessee? Or is this about Americans treating their kids as objects, possessions? "Oh, I want to adopt a kid so people will look up to me, but he/she must be picture-perfect?" Is this the Madonna mentality...adopting her black kids as tokens to her glitzy world? Is this rush it back to Wal-Mart after you've tried it and used it and don't understand it and want your money back?

    Shame on America. Yet more shame on America. Shame on Tennessee.

    WTF does this have to do with America where you need to shame america for one stupid woman? Probably why the US has very strict adoption rules, to prevent stuff like this. but as a drawback many people can't stand the process which is very hard and takes a long time, hence why they go to foreign countries, its easier.

    Who the hell knows what was going through this woman's head. Does no good to attempt to make up reasons why she did what she did.

    And it certainly shouldn't represent the entire country

    There is a mindset in this country, where couples picture the perfect cookie-cutter children, then go ape-feces when the kids turn out to be human beings and real kids. Kids have real problems. This woman in Tennessee has shamed America. She didn't try to work with it...she didn't try treatment...she didn't try counselling...my God, isn't America supposed to be THE country for sources to help kids? Nope. She did squat and now we have an international incident whether you like it or not. Thousands waiting to adopt, most of them probably decent prospective parents, are now going to suffer the ire of Russian officials.

    If you had adopted a foreign kid, would you throw up your hands and shove him onto a plane...7 years old...ALONE...with a freaking note pinned to him in English and ship him to Russia unannounced? Is that what you are advocating?

    Yes, it is now an international incident and another very black mark on Americans in general. Get over it. That's what the rest of the world is going to see!

    Ok without having the link to the article or knowing anything else I'll opine.

    While her judgment on this is horrible we do not know what was going on with her to have such a lack of judgment. We can speculate all day, money, divorce, mental illness, health issues, the list could go on.

    One bad apple shouldn't spoil the entire bushel.

    I heard about this on the news tonight.

    The so called "mother" and the "grandmother" ought to be arrested for child abuse, tried, convicted and put away for a good long while.

    What they did was cruel in the worst kind of way.

    You don't give up on children. You don't throw them away. And you sure the fuck DON'T put them on a plane all alone at the age of 7 and fly them back to Russia--where there is NO ONE even waiting for their arrival.

    What horrific pieces of shit these two women are. They are the epitome of the "Arrogant American".
