Tennessee has been in the news for the past week or so because a distraught women in Shelbyville returned her adopted son to Russia. She said that he has so many mental health issues that she cannot keep him. Past of the uproar has been due to the fact that she put him on an airplane alone – at just 7 years old – with a note to the Russians instead of going on the plane with him. She claims that she arranged for a Russian man to meet the child at the airport in Moscow and take the child to the proper authorities.
The local sheriff says that he cannot find any laws that have been broken by her actions, so he cannot arrest her for anything.
I say, leave the poor woman alone. She has been through a lot this past year or so and what happens to her family is none of our business. She did her best, and that’s all you can ask of anyone.
