This child might actually be a sociopathic adult
This is the most bizarre story you'll hear today. Kristine Barnett, parenting expert and author, and her husband Michael Barnett were parents to Natalia Grace Barnett, their adopted Ukraine daughter who they thought was a child but who may actually be an adult with dwarfism. The Natalia Grace case is being called the real life Orphan. Now, in 2019, years after ditching their adopted daughter, the real life Orphan adoption story is getting even crazier now that charges have been filed. // Prefer watching your true crime stories?
