(NECN) – Outraged Russian officials are calling for a halt to all adoptions by Americans after a Tennessee woman put her seven-year-old adopted son on a plane to Russia, alone, saying she was lied to about his mental state.
The 33-year-old single nurse reportedly sent the boy back to his homeland with a note saying his violent behavior included a threat to burn the family’s home down.
The State Department says it is working closely with Russian officials on the troubling case.
Russian officials say three families have already come forward asking to adopt the boy.
