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.
