Very little was posted here this year. We hope that indicates that the abuse and murders of Russian adoptees has greatly decreased. This is the longest period of time in several years in which no deaths were reported (that we know of). But we remain diligent.
We have found no update on the Brian Dale Dykstra case (birth name unknown), which is now nearly 4 1/2 years old. We, do however, have an update on at least one other case, which we'll write and post next week.
Although we doubt Masha Allen will ever have "closure" (what a phony and misleading word!) we do hope that with her federal case on track, and with Faith Allen out of the picture, she can at least move forward.
Masha, we are with you!
Here is a classic Russian cartoon from 1975 to bring in the new year. You don't have to understand Russian to get the message.
