Marusya’s mom: "The girl is wonderful and what is the most important, she's ours. We went for the adoption just right after we saw the picture of her. She was waiting for us for 2 years and 1 month. Thanks God we have our daughter."

"We adopted Misha when he was 11 years old. He has been with us for 8 months and we are very happy. He is a caring elder brother and loving son."

Too early! I want to know how they are doing in 10, 15, 20 years.
Never underestimate the power of large crowds, of stupid people.

Fenrisulven - you'll just have to sit down an wait... :-)

I guess you noticed that one picture is dated 2007, so you may see the first evaluations in less than ten years. You make it sound as if you are really eager to see all or most these kids FAIL (why else would you reject the current "success story" and proclaim that you are waiting for something different?): "There you see, it wasn't such a grand success after all!". Obviously, adoptive children may run into problems, just like any other kids. Their background may even be the source of some problems other kids do not have. Yet, being adopted by loving and caring parents is likely to reduce their problems significantly, compared to the alternatives.

The names of the kids suggest that these pictures may be from Eastern Europe. My impression is that parents in that part of the world, on the average, actively want to have kids, to take care of them, play with them, involve them in all aspects of their daily life far more than the typical Western parent. I would not at all be worried about how these kids fare in 10, 15, 20 years. Actually, I am far more worried about the (not adopted) kids I see around me in our part of the world...

This photos are from Russia, so yes, only caucasian kids, because there aren't many black people in this country.

It is refreshing to see the innocence of youth. They look happy and content, unburdened by the crap of adult life. How can you not wish success for these children?
