180. Home of James Roberts and Natalia Petrova, Fairfax, Virginia
It cannot be fun being a teenager living by these parents. Any slip-ups and the teenager are sent half way around the world to a country she had little knowledge about and language she no longer spoke. The daughter acted out as any normal teenager would do when she was brought up believing that a certain man was her father only to discover at age 12 that she had been lied to.
Well, it seems that her birth-mother has decided to create a new family and in this puzzle there is no room for the daughter. What if the half-siblings in a couple of years also act out? Will they also be kicked out of the home to some kind of remote location?
We urge the Department of Social Services in Fairfax, Virginia to take a close look at this household and remove the half-siblings from their home and put them into foster care. No child should be forced to live an entire upbringing in fear of being exiled like the daughter did.
And we have another plea. It is time for all other countries – not only Russia – to stop adoptions to parents in the United States. It is not right for parents in the United States to dump their unwanted children at the expenses of citizens in the native land the children come from. When you take on the responsibilities of being a parent, this responsibility lasts until the child is an adult.
Mr. James Roberts and his wife Natalia Petrova (Roberts) cheated the tax-payers in two countries. First they let the taxpayers in Chantilly pay for their daughter’s education and when they wanted to start over with new children, the taxpayers in Berdsk had to start paying from there. It is not fair!! The only way to stop this situation is to send the daughter back so she can finish her high school in Virginia. A happy family life cannot be guaranteed but the daughter would have a future in a land where she knows the culture well.
