Most who adopt children from other countries find joy. But others arent prepared for the risks—and may find themselves overwhelmed..

Yes very. It reminds me of the film Child of Rage.

As "Kramer" from "Seinfeld" said, "apparently, adoption leads to murder."

People should be checked out more carefully before they are allowed to adopt!

I think there was another discussion about adoption, and I posted that my father constantly told me throughout my life that it is never a good idea to adopt a child because adopted children always have problematic behavior.
I thought that his words were strange because if no one adopted children more than half the population of the world would be in orphanages or children's homes all their young lives. My dad said that adopted children have an inherent knowledge in them that their adopted parents are not their real parents and resent it deeply and will just act out.

This link you posted is of a particularly tragic story and it is probably very complicated as far as the psychology. Even if the adoptive mother was holding in her anger all the time she dealt with her difficult adopted daughter, it seems too extreme that when the adoptive mother finally broke down she got as violent as she did. There just had to be some thing inherently psychotic in the mother and I wonder if the adoption agency fully thought over giving the child to the adoptive mother and whether they ignored something strange in the personality of the mother. It might not be that the child was just, out-of-nowhere , doing things like throwing things and shouting, and causing disruption. The child might have somehow been psychologically or physically mistreated by the adoptive mother, or maybe someone in the household. Also, though I read quickly through the article, I did not see anything about getting any kind of psychological help for the child throughout the time that the child showed such strongly distressed behavior.
Of course the article does say that the adoptive mother started to drink heavily because she was frustrated. Getting addicted to alcohol when you have a lot of frustrations is a sure recipe for disaster.
