                To me, she speaks a little too sophisticated for a 16 yr.old. AND, in another video, I heard the husband of the couple that are being charged for abandoning her, say, that his wife one day was going to give her a bath, & saw a full growth of pubic hair. The wife hollared to her husband to come & THAT is what really threw them for a loop. And she was supposed to only be 6-8years old. AND, ALSO in this same video, the husband told of the funny way that the agency wanted them to adopt her. It was very unusual.

                    Also for the people saying she doesn’t look her age, yes she does. When you have dwarfism you obviously look fucking different physically. She still has baby face, just because she’s well spoken and not dressed like a child doesn’t mean that she’s in her fucking 30’s. That is complete bs.

                      I don't believe the Barnetts because 1 backhand & she'd be gone. How can they be afraid. MONEY was the issue. I don't believe she's 16, maybe 20-25. How can she not remember anything but I feel badly for her.

                                  this whole situation is literally the plot of that one movie called orphan.

                                      She is a liar. Period. She may not know how old she is, but she knows that she lied to the couple that she was 6 yrs old. She was a dwarf teen.
                                      US shall send her back to Ukraine
                                      Yeah, when you adopt a child, you are responsible, but not when it turned out that she is a teen and even an adult dwarf, lying to be small child

                                        How on earth could you people believe a story of an evil orphan standing with a knife at somebody's bedside? It's ridiculous, sounds like a bad horror movie. Because it actually is a bad horror movie. Her previous family is supporting her (they even provided pictures of her with her baby teeth at the age of 6), her current family is supporting her.. So the only people claiming she's an evil psychopath are the same people who abandoned her? Come on, that's just ridiculous

                                          She said when she was taken home with the family she was 8. The parents first revelation that something was wrong was that their “baby” girl had FULL PUBIC HAIR” and I don’t know any 8 year old that would let their own Mummy bathe them, this was all about becoming a citizen, I am sure. She was told to keep her mouth firmly shut until it was too late. The family was understandably heartbroken and angry, and this grifter fought back! They put her up in her own apartment with everything she needed and then some. They checked on her, not knowing exactly how old she was and knowing they were accountable. Eventually they left the area, and the quasi adult scammer behind. The thanks they get is unwanted media attention and the adopted media circus milking it for all its worth! I would have taken her back and sued, and I am a polite Canadian!

                                                      Bring back orphanages expecting random familys to rase kids is stupid it sets things up for abuse and people who get kids for money etc . An orphanage where kid are with other kids and go to bed and wake up same time everyday and also work gives the kids structure and makes for better adults . Rather than some kid adopted by someone for financial means and rased by tv or an i pad .
