Torry Hansen Tried To Adopt Another Child
Torry Hansen Tried To Adopt Another Child – Torry Hansen, the adoptive mother of a young Russian boy who was sent back on a plane alone to Russia when Hansen began to fear for her life, was apparently attempting to adopt a second child. Hansen had put the young boy on a plane headed for Russia after the boy had drawn a picture of their house with it on fire and the family still inside. Hansen has since claimed that she feared for her life and made a bad decision to send him back by way of plane instead of going through the proper channels. The way that the situation was handled has deeply upset the adoption community as well as representatives of Russia and in the United States.
Hansen had reportedly made contact with a second adoption agency in an attempt to adopt a second child from the Soviet Republic of Georgia. Hansen had reportedly become disheartened with the first company after she was not pleased with the personality of the first child. That company was the World Association for Children and Parents, which is an organization that is based in Renton, Washington. The group had suggested that Hansen wait before making a second adoption, saying that it would be best that she settle in with the boy before adding to the family.
Only months later Hansen would end up placing the boy on a plane headed back to Russia in hopes that the adoption would be annulled. She had placed a note in the boys pocket that stated that he had issues with violence and other psychiatric problems, and that she no longer wished to continue serving as his adoptive parent.
Both Torry and Nancy Hansen have refused to interviewed unless they are going to be charged with a crime. Potential charges that they could face include abuse, endangering the welfare of a child and educational neglect. The educational neglect charge has been thrown around because records show that the boy never registered for public school or home school.
