Its a sad day no matter how you look at it when an adoptee dies. This story comes out of Dallas but was reported in Romania. The new boyfriend of the adoptee's ex-girlfriend killed him. Granted adoption has no purpose in this story, the adoption industry does not want any negative attention paid to it in any form or fashion. That is why this story has not made big news here in the United States.

Here is the link and the story.
