It is sad that the children never got to be adopted in America, but a lot is changing in Russia. There use to b a stigma about adopting a child or foster care in Russian society. I see it as being positive that people are stepping up in Russia to help these children. Even though, there has been over 60.000 adoptions, the fact that 20 have died from abuse is not acceptable. The woman who sent her 7 year old son back to Russia, on a plane by himself, was never charged with child abandonment, neglect, etc. I would agree that it was political if I knew about the other adoptions in Russia to other foreign countries and how many deaths have occurred and punishments?

Why not adopt children from here in America?... Due to the fact taht about a million adoptable children are aborted every year in the U.S., they tend to be hard to come by. Thanks "Pro-Choicers".
