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.
