    Yes. Lots of screw-ups involved in this story.

    At least you didn't try to blame the USA for it. Check this out: http://www.usmessageboard.com/current-events/112888-americas-shame-adopted-kid-returned.html :lol:

    That mother should be arrested.

    She cannot send her child back to Russia any more than someone could send their disruptive American born child to Russia.

    ahhh all so judgemental of this woman....did you read where the kid said he wanted to burn down the house with everyone in it...not once...not twice but almost daily....no one knows what type of trauma has occurred with this child....russia is know for dumping kids not fit for adoption into the system...plus she was a single mother...i am not defending her actions but i am not gonna pile on and curse her...

    i wished i was as perfect as yall are....

    i dont approve of her method of return....i am simply glad she didnt beat him to death etc....wow..let me remind you...people are beating kids to death daily....hell most likely hourly...i dont see yall hating on them....

    could yall stop being so reactionarly to things you find in the press.....child abuse is rampant in this country....but lets all cry and weep over one russia boy......


    An average of nearly four children die every day as a result of child abuse or neglect (1,760 in 2007).

    Child Abuse Statistics

    but hey lets not see the forest for the trees

    I've never understood why Americans want to adopt children from overseas when there are plenty of children here who need to be adopted...anyway!! What's the difference in adopting children from another country than adopting from the country where you live? I don't get it! Americans are complaining about bringing immigrants into this country, does it make a difference if they are from Mexico or Russia? If not, then why are so many people upset about the boy being sent home to Russia by himself? Would they be as upset if he was sent home to Mexico by himself? I doubt it...afterall, he would not be Russian. If you get my meaning.

    Legally, it seems that it is much easier to adopt a foreign born child. Not nearly the long waiting.

    It's our society with its whole instant gratification thing.

    Well, if we call ourselves Christian people who sit in church every Sunday and listen to the pastor preach about the rights and wrongs of our society and what we as Christians should be doing right...we are failing miserably. And it's a shame.
