Mother sends adopted son back to Russia

A registered nurse from Tennessee adopted a boy from Russia. This week, she put the child, now 7 years old, on a flight back to Moscow, with a note saying she could no longer care for him. The mother said he “is violent and has severe psychopathic issues,” and that she “was lied to and misled by the Russian orphanage workers” about his problems.

Read Russia calls for halt on U.S. adoptions after return of boy, in the New York Times.

    thank you, Buttons and Witty for your posts re: Pinky. He is acting just fine, and I’ve resolved not to worry. He’s a happy kitty and I’m sure he’s fine. Thanks so much for your concern. It means a lot. 🙂 , Kim

    He crossed paths with evil twice. It rocks a person’s world. I feel for him.
