WHY WOULD YOU SEND A CHILD ON AN AIRPLANE BACK TO RUSSIA LIKE A FISHERMAN THROWING BACK A FISH???
I lived just 10 minutes from the Tennessee border (in Alabama). This is the state that is proud to be the home of the idiot that sent an adopted child back to Russia with NOTHING BUT A NOTE saying she couldn’t deal with him.
Does this not send the most absolute worse impression of America to the world? We treat people, like our resources, like so much disposable aluminum cans.
Russia, to the their credit, has said NO to America. No more adoptions.
As someone who has a friend that has spent YEARS going through the adoption process, this story is just sickening. My friend has spent countless hours on paperwork and emotional highs and lows going throw the process with now THREE different countries. Each country was another 2 years, another bout of waiting for an answer and for papers to be processed, another check, another rejection.
AND THIS IDIOT FROM TENNESSEE JUST THROWS HER CHILD BACK!
At the very least this woman should have sought help. She should have gone to as many counselors, psychologists, therapists, etc to work this out. YOU DON’T GET TO SEND A CHILD BACK! She should be publicly humiliated.
I have little respect for anyone who sympathizes with her. You might say, Oh, you don’t know what she went through. She might have had a very very hard time of it.
If the kid killed her husband, maybe I’d be a little more sympathetic. I think anyone would. But this just sounds like someone who didn’t take enough time to solve what is a solvable problem.
Hopefully we as a country will not allow this sort of thing to happen again.
