I am so tormented be the recent news from my state.
I am so sorry for the child.
I am also so sorry for the adoptive parents who, undoubtedly, must have felt so helpless and hopeless.
No adoptive parent adopts a child with the intent of sending that child away to be sexually abused.
I would say for the most part, adoptive parents adopt out of a deep longing to help a child.
And there really isn’t help “out there” for parents after the adoption.
I have said before, and will say again…
That other adoptive mother,,, who sent her adoptive son back to Russia, probably came to the conclusion that that action was the most merciful; send him back to his own language, own culture, to the food he understood,to the things with which he was familiar…..
and she could not find the help she needed.
