This is an “orphanage” in the Ukraine, but it’s also posing as a hospital. Its website states that the children are kept in quarentine for a month when they arrive – it sure sounds a lot like the old Pindown routine to me!
I strongly suspect that this is where our state stolen forced adoption children are ending up.

|Razinboys Turned Down a Placement and doesn’t think that kids should have visits with their real mothers

I turned down a placement yesterday. I’m afraid I’m becoming bitter. I am getting a backbone when it comes to dealing with the system. The children were 5 yrs and 7 months. The mother was crazy, schizo. The family members wanted to keep the children but they can’t handle the crazy mother! Then the parents had visits that would interfere with me picking my own children up from school, and would cut into Kindergarten for the 5 yr old. I just do not want to deal with that drama.

He was a loving father who’d always been a part of his children’s lives — and when their mother lost custody, he immediately stepped forward. But he had to fight for his children’s right to live with him.

An Oklahoma City toddler found in a swimming pool Saturday died Monday afternoon at OU Medical Center.
