She adopted a boy and now she has returned him.
Kinda like not liking the new top you purchased at Old Navy.
Here is a story about a 7-year-old Russian boy adopted by an American family last year. The boy was said to be “violent and psychotic” so grandma returned him. Yep, they put the 7 year old on an airplane, alone, and returned him. The child showed up unannounced at Russia’s child protection ministry.
The adoptive family says they were following the instructions of a lawyer they found online when they shipped the kid back. What?
The family says they had asked if the child had any problems and were assured that he was fine. The doctor said “‘He’s healthy,’ and turned and left,” says mom.
Once the child learned enough English, he told his new family about the horrors of his previous life, including being beaten at the orphanage after his mother abandoned him, she said. He also told of an incident in which he burned down a building near the orphanage, she said.

And like everything else it seems, everyone seems to be pointing the finger of blame.
Future adoptions to U.S. are banned pending new treaty, foreign minister says. The US and Russia are investigating and a Russian official says grandmother’s claim about child’s treatment is “a lie” .
Today we ripped this meme off a blogger named Calvin at the blog Calvin’s Canadian Cave of Coolness. In fact this is not the first time that Cal has been the victim. This time though, he did not state where he got the meme. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft’s thieves might take some time. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!
