Heh....I personally know a couple that adopted first a girl from Russia who was 2 years old and then later another Russian child also 2 years old. At first the girl seemed the more well behaved although she was withdrawn and spent much of her time sitting alone and playing very little with other children. The little boy was constantly in trouble, jumping off roofs and getting into fights. The couple that adopted them couldn't have children of their own and adopted them when already they were well into their 40's. They tried everything to bring them up and make them as happy as they could loving them as if they were their own and never gave up on either one of them. Now the children are in their late 20's. The girl, the one we all thought was the more well behaved was actually the one that for lack of a better word is a disaster. She has been arrested so many times I think the parents have lost count. She hangs around with thugs, she uses drugs and has never been able to even get her high school diploma. The unskilled jobs she manages to get are always short lived and she eventually gets fired. She still lives with the parents breaking her mothers heart over and over. She disappears for days and sometimes weeks at a time without a word. Then comes back with no explanation, nothing. As this goes on and on. Her parents have paid for rehabilitation I don't know how many times exactly but at least 3 that I know about. None of them worked for longer than a couple of weeks and then she's back at it. Now the parents in are close to 70 or so and they should be enjoying themselves but they can't. The fear one day the police are going to show up to tell them their daughter is dead.
Next the son, the one they thought was going to be the bad one found himself a nice girl and settled down and finished high school and got himself a trade. From the day he finished high school he has been in no fights and makes good steady money doing an honest days' work.
I mean, orphans get fucked up over there, God knows, growing up in the horrible state run system that they do: Sucks to be an orphan...
But, 2 year olds, babies, would have been alright when they got out, I am pretty sure. Whatever screwed up that girl, is to be found in her NEW home, in America, methinks. Not necessarily the parents are to blame; but, perhaps negative influence of peers at her new school, etc...
