Here’s the link where I read the story….
Basically what happened was a woman in Tennessee adopted a boy from Russia on September 29th last year and decided that she didn’t want to raise him any longer because he had behavior problems. She put some cookies and a coloring pen into his knapsack and put him on a plane back to Moscow, Russia. The boy is 7 years old. She hired a man for $200 to meet the plane in Moscow and to take the boy to The Russian Science and Education Ministry building.
An excerpt from the article:
The letter — addressed “to whom it may concern” at the Russian Ministry of Education in Moscow — said: “After giving my best to this child, I am sorry to say that for the sake of my family, friends and myself, I no longer wish to parent this child.
“As he is a Russian national, I am returning him to your guardianship and would like the adoption dis-annulled,” the letter said.
In the letter, Hansen accused officials at the Russian orphanage where the boy lived of not telling her the truth about him. “The child is mentally unstable,” she said. “I was lied to and misled by the Russian orphanage workers and director regarding his mental stability and other issues. The orphanage employees were definitely aware of the major problems that this child has. Yet they chose to grossly misrepresent those problems, in order to get him out of their orphanage.”
Since this has happened, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov wants to put a stop to any adoptions to American families until Russia and the United States sign an international agreement. Honestly I don’t know how signing and agreement is going to change idiots like this little boys adoptive mother.
What makes me REALLY mad is that a spokesperson at the Bedford County TN Sheriff’s Department said “that while no charges have been filed against Hansen, an investigation is under way and she has agreed to meet with law enforcement officials next week.” That to me is unbelievable! In my opinion this sorry excuse for a mother should be arrested for child abandonment and her biological son (yes she has another child) should be placed with a family member because obviously she’s not a good parent.
If she didn’t want the child she adopted – FINE! But there is a right way to deal with a situation like that, and a wrong way. She went with the wrong way if you ask me.
Have you read about this or seen it in the news? I know someone who was faced with a situation where she felt an adopted child was a detriment to another child of hers. But I assure you that she didn’t just dump him off at an airport with some cookies!!!
If anyone sees additional information about this story I’d love to hear about it because I have friends who CAN’T have children and CAN’T afford to adopt and then you hear about morons like this woman….
Also, there is a video you might want to watch as well….
