America will not do this: Looks like Russian adoptions to Americans will end before long…

Russia will require reports from every family in the United States who adopts a Russian child. This was announced by the Commissioner under the President of Russia on the Rights of the Child Pavel Astakhov. US-Russian agreement on cooperation in the field of adoptions made in the State Duma for ratification on Friday. Astakhov stressed the need for urgent ratification of the document, “to get Americans to fulfill their obligations and ensure the rights of Russian children.” Since 1996, American host families have killed 19 children from Russia, says the press office of the Ombudsman. Several cases are still ongoing. (RIAN)

From what I understand Putin has been working on even banning forever adoption by Americans. The issue of adopted first by Russians has become forefront and foremost. The word is that if Americans will not promise a record trail on the adopted child and allow a Russian check on the children at least until they reach 18 years old then no adoption will take place…

This new program has been laid out by Pavel Astakhov who is in charge of the adoption situation in Russia and believe you me Pavel Astakhov, has a lot of respect in Russia and what he wants will happen. Medvedev gave him total control over the situation for children and Putin has followed suit…

I just do not see America complying with what Russia wants, because of all the rules and regulations to keep adopted children from know who their real parents are in America. Russians do not understand tat type of thinking and hence, you adopt you tell the child who his real parents are. Hence the child should be taught Russians as well as English. Hence the child has the right to know that he or she was Russian. Also not only be told at an early age but allowed to bask in the Russian heritage as much as the American heritage…

People in America like to play games with adopted children and never want that child to never know that they have other parents. I guess it is a psychological issue. Hmm…

I do not know because I never was adopted or never adopted anyone, but I do know many that where and some of them were lied to all their lives, until an accident caused them to find out that they were adopted. The pain and hurt was vastly exceeded by the fact that their parents lied bold faced and pretended that they were natural born to them. I saw it many times and never understood why this was this way…

I guess fear of rejection by the child in the future is greater than the fear of repercussions of the truth ever being told… 🙁

Love breaks boundaries and if they love the child then the truth is appropriate for all parties involved. Even if the child is adopted at birth, they still deserve to know what their past is and to embrace that past, however they feel to embrace it…
