Russian boy in U.S. adoption case back in orphanage, attorney says
Artyem carried with him a letter signed by his adoptive mother, Torry Hansen of Shelbyville, Tennessee. In it, she said the boy was "mentally
unstable" with violent tendencies, and that she had been misled about his mental condition.
"I am sorry to say that for the safety of my family, friends and myself, I no longer wish to parent this child," the letter read. "As he is a
Russian national, I am returning him to your guardianship and would like the adoption (annulled)."Please visit the link provided for the complete story.
How terrible. "I know longer wish to parent this child"
What does this woman think? The young boy is not an object/item, he is a human being. He like anyone else has emotions and feelings.
He maybe mentally unstable, but the boy was living in an orphanage, with no parents, siblings, and probably felt abandoned. And at a young age, it
sure takes a toll on the boy.
Russia has also suspended US Adoptions because of this sad situation.

I wish the kid the best, and hopefully a family will take him into thier arm's even though he maybe "mentally unstable", and even help him through
it. That's what a family is for.
Mod's Im sure I posted this in a appropriate manner, but if not let me know and i'll fix.
