Editor's Note: Monday’s American Morning audience was disturbed by the story of the adopted Russian boy returned to the country by his adoptive parents.
- Eileen: What a monster this family was. I don't care if the kid was "Damien" he is a child, a seven year old child. They adopted this child; they are his legal parents, with all the rights and "responsibilities." Not only was it cruel, it was reckless endangerment of a child and these people must be brought to justice. The poor child. I wouldn't care what he said, he was probably defending himself out of his unfortunate fearful past. No doubt these people abused him for him to make those threats. Russia is right, it was a monstrous act and they need to be held accountable. The poor precious child, what he must have endured. I hope that our Country and Russia will reach out to this wonderful kid and see to it that his wounded life is healed and he is allowed to be a child, a happy one.
- Charles C: Adoption of the Russia returned child, it's not the fault of the child did parent have a chance to get spend time and know the child, we have many children in the U.S.A. that need to be adopted, I hate that people are going to foreign country like an exploited animal.
- Anna Lee: In the story regarding the 7 year old sent back to Russia, the response by John and Carin was so weak, almost uncaring. What airline would transport this American Citizen without question. Should criminal charges be looked into for a mother who would do this. Where did the child end up and where are Federal reps that should be looking after his rights. More investigation should be taken, and probably would be if this child was not disabled. Who will speak for him. I hope it will be CNN.
