Russia Wants To Suspend US Adoptions | Fox News
Yep, i hope they do!
There are enough unwanted children languishing here in foster care...
That's really sad.
There was a huge stink last year about this time when the US family sent a 7 year old girl back to Moscow with just a suitcase and a nastygram to the adoption agency.
however, by all accounts the tyke was a hellion.
They are right to want a better set of safeguards for the kids.

Home - Russian street children
They should. Russia has a terrible problem with drug and alcohol abuse. Some of these children are terribly damaged, and/or born drug addicted themselves. Instead of help, they get adopted into US families who have drug problems themselves. On top of all that, there is no oversight of what happens to Russian children adopted into American families. No follow up to make sure they are working out.
What evidence do you have that any significant percentage of adoptive US families have drug problems?
None. Generally the United States has a serious drug problem. No one doubts or disputes that.
Russia is looking at 17 dead Russian kids as a result of domestic violence. Something aggravated that.
So you cannot support your assumption. I thought so.
