mbillips: DeadGeek: Why would I want to adopt a mail order bride subby?Does this answer your question, tovarisch?[www.rbrides.com image 450x644]
DaintySavage: Don't know where you heard it was cheaper internationally.
onyxruby: out to meet one a few times. He was raised in South
The Stealth Hippopotamus: chuckufarlie: They do not want their children gunned down in American Schools,Yeah, the Commies dont no nutting about no school shootinghttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beslan_school_hostage_crisis
Miss Cellania: Adopting internationally is usually easier. My husband and I were ineligible for public adoption because we hadn't been married long enough, unless we wanted to take in a "problem teenager" temporarily (which I have done since then, but at the time I was an inexperienced parent). We couldn't compete in the private adoption market -too old, not married long enough, and not wealthy. So we adopted internationally.There are plenty of children in the US who need homes, but the vast majority are not available for permanent adoption because their parents retain rights even if they can't take care of the child.
LargeCanine: Cymbal: Aren't the brides emotionally and intellectually still children too?Part of the appeal right?Actually, Russian and Slavic women in general have a cultural aversion to being seen as immature. They work very hard to earn respect as mature adults and tend to look down at the idea of wanting to be younger than they are. Pretty much the opposite of Western women.
quiet_american: SeraphymA nice way to use statistics to obscure the fact that a Russian child died from being left in a car for nine hours.That Americans have killed less than Russians, go USA!This whole thread is just a bunch of morons spouting off about how great the USA is, based off of one shiatty article.

Seraphym: quiet_american: SeraphymYep, surely that's what I did, tried to obscure a tragedy with facts...[media.tumblr.com image 235x206]
Schmegicky: quiet_american: A nice way to use statistics to obscure the fact that a Russian child died from being left in a car for nine hours.Don't forget also that it was the prosecutor in the Chase Harrison (Dima Yakovlev) case that decided to try the case as an intentional homicide rather than as negligent one.Either the prosecutor was stupidly greedy or incredibly dense.If not for this charging blunder, the father would have been doing time.Instead, it's considered verification by the Russians that the entire American legal system is flawed.
quiet_american: I don't disagree with your analysis about the prosecutor, but I also don't think their conclusions about the American legal system is all that off either.
natas6.0: I understand taking kids from poverty etc etc etcso if you really just can't stand the thought of adopting an american childor you simply must have a white kidthen by all meansthis law is a tragedy for youthe preceeding message brought to you by the unworthy of adoptionwho finds you unworthy of respectso here's a heaping spoonful of my disgust
quiet_american: Seraphym: quiet_american: SeraphymYou import bad motives onto the entire Russian political system because they make laws off of a tragedy. You used statistics to deflect away from that primary tragedy (not even mentioned in the article and only obliquely referenced by you). So, yes, you are the asshole trying to use numbers to get away from the emotional story.
SweetMama: Seraphym: Don't take it so personal. This is fark. You are arguing with an adolescent, or a troll. Let it go.
