Wow, just..... wow.
Here is the article on The Huffington Post.
I am really interested in what people think about this. Take out the obvious, sending a 7 year old alone on an airplane is wrong, wrong, wrong. Handling a challenging adoption by sending your child alone on an airplane back to his country of origin, there will never be an excuse to justify it.
But I wonder, how many levels of failure had to take place in order for a family to get to the point where they felt this was the best choice they could make after living with the boy for 6 months. We don't know what kind of help the family sought and we don't know what the quality of the help might have been. Actually we know next to nothing about the adoptive mother, though I am sure that will change quickly.
So, what do you think?
