    Russia suspends all adoptions to US families - Yahoo! News

    I have known of 2 seperate families in our area that had adopted children from Russia and they had similar experiences. The children were obviously traumatized prior to being adopted because they acted out in horrible ways. One family placed the child in a temporary institution for evaluation after he set fire to the dog house in the backyard. He had covered the opening with a board and nailed it closed with the dog inside.

    The other family lived across the street from us and the two boys that they had adopted were verbally and physically abusive to our kids and other kids on our street. But they had also made threats of violence to their babysitter.

    It would seem that there is something very wrong with the orphanages in Russia. So, I'm not so sure that this story is a bad thing. There are plenty of adoptable children here in our country. We just need to get the financial side of it to where more who want to adopt can afford to.

    If anyone abandoned this boy, it was his natural mother and the Russian Authorities. The boy lived with her natural mother for 6 years. For a reason unknown to us, he was somehow put into an orphanage in Russia and adopted out to an American for 6 months. The boy is where he should be. In Russia with people speaking Russian, his language, and being treated in the Russian System. Poor Ms Hensen got caught in the System. Taking every precaution such as the Grandmother accompied the boy to DC, paid for Airline Supervision and put him on the plane to Russia, paid a licensed guide to pick the boy up and take him to the Russian medical authorites. I certainly would not be putting my self in a position of interacting with the Authorities on their soil and not American soil.

    Oops, as always, calling names ends the discussion due to failure of name calling poster to advance the debate.

    Spoken like someone who's never had to deal with a troubled child.
