We are so eager to vilify people without knowing the whole story, I know.

And from all outward appearances, this woman made what in her mind (the stability of which is obviously in question) must've been genuine efforts to get the child back to Russia safely. But, oh my God, I just don't understand this. I don't. I'm so grateful she didn't drive her vehicle in the river to drown him...but is that only because he was old enough to swim?

And the fact that there is a sincere possibility that there may not actually be any charges that can be legally brought upon her is truly a failure of the justice system.

And beyond that, that she may even be able to sue, or somehow receive compensation for HER pain and anguish because she may have been lied to or deceived by the adoption agency is excruciatingly shocking. File this one under O.J. Simpson.

Wow. And gays and lesbians are a threat to the 'traditional family'? Now I've heard/seen everything. This woman needs to face abuse charges.

It's nice to see someone advocating for the mom. What a tragic situation for all involved.

Tragic, yes. Wouldn't say I'm advocating for the mother, though. I'm just not willing to tar and feather her. Yet.
