Meet the Families Vladimir Putin Doesn't Want to Exist

In December 2012, President Vladimir Putin signed a law prohibiting Americans from adopting Russian children. The ban was revenge for the Magnitsky Act, which outlaws mostly Russian human rights offenders from entering the United States.

Once again, as if it needed to be done again, demonstrating why "cutting off your nose to spite your face" is a proverb.

Noted. It's really too bad that politics have to get in the way of allowing these children the chance to be loved and cared for in a family. Of course, nothing is perfect and sometimes things don't work out; but so much more often, a family is created or enlarged and love conquers all. Thanks, Carrie.

Very sad, because it hurts the children the most.

Ths s what happens when you have a family unprepared for adoption sending a seven year old unwanted back to nothing in Russia .. Russians aren't overly appreciative about that. Not to mention other stories of adoptive abuse that have made ther way back to Russia.

Once a KGB thug, always a KGB thug regardless of the name or title change.

Have you ever read about the conditions of some of those orphanages? It's a breeding ground for psycopathy; psychoses and criminal behavior. I'm not saying that all of them are like this but there are a good percentage that are. Caveat emptor.

Some of the most heartbreaking cases in my school are Russian children who have fetal alcohol issues. Parents have no idea until the child begins to develop.
