I am freaking out!!!!

It was a happy day yesterday until I read the story about the Russian boy that was put on the plane alone with a not. Great,this idiot for a woman may have ruined adoptions for other people. I just don't get it. It takes a lot of money,time,paper chasing to do an adoption and than she just takes the easiest way out. She disposed of him like he was nothing. I am so sad about this. My husband spoke with our agency about this and they told us that we'll go ahead with everything BUT there is a chance that Russia may put a stop to it's adoptions. I feel bad for us and for all the people who are so close to getting their child home . This is just horrible and if Russia does closes its doors we will be heart broken.

Thanks for your comment on my blog. Congratulations on your referral. I'm right there with you praying and hoping for this not to turn horrible for all of us waiting. It's such a shame that you can't even be happy right now. Just worrying... Hang in there.

Hopefully this is jsut some politicians talking tough guys. I have read about this and it is incredibly foolish of an adult to do that to any 7 year old child no matter the psychological issues he may have, if any. Our thoughts will be with you for a quick turn around and that Russia will realize that they have to many children to stop adopting to the USA both for you and others.

And I hope this woman and her mother are charged with criminal negligence of a child. They both deserve some form of punishment.

I just came across your blog today. We are praying for families such as your. We completed our first adoption last year and are in the homestudy process to return to the Vlad region. This whole situation is unheard of. Hopefully there are level headed people that will handle this situation in a way that is best for everyone - especially the childen.

I just sent an email to the Minister of Foreign Affairs in Russia and contacted the Russian Embassy. I encourage you and all your readers to contact them and tell them of your disapproval of what the mother did and ask them to please not close adoption to us. Here is the information:
