In extreme cases, do you think its okay to give back an adopted child?
I was reading this article about a couple who adopted from Russia who ended up almost giving their adopted son back. He was orphaned from a mother who did drugs while he was in the womb. When he came to the states, he failed to bond with his new family, he constantly fought with the couples biological children, he tried to harm the family pet, and literally set up a booby trap with needles in the carpet to try to harm his new mom. The family tried all manner of counseling before they started to run out of money, they went to several doctors, and before they could actually turn him back over to the adoption agency, he was taken into juvenile custody for bringing a gun to school. Do you think that in extreme cases like this, a family should be able to give back an adopted child?
Yes, in extreme cases, the family should be able to give back an adopted child

No, kids aren't toys on the shelf. Adoption means you selected and wanted that child, and as with any difficult child, you deal as best you can
