Leonardo DiCaprio, the actor of the movie "Titanic", has brought "alternative" gospel to fans in his radiant acting career - he has done the classic thriller "Titanic". Producer of Orphans. The film tells the story of a family of four whose mother wants to heal her miscarriage and free herself from alcoholism, so she adopts a 9-year-old Estonian girl. Unexpectedly, this act of kindness led to the destruction of the whole family. The adopted girl, Esther, looks extremely well-behaved and behaves extremely dignified, but her real face is an adult mentally ill dwarf who is over 30 years old. A terrifying trap, intending to occupy the magpie's nest from now on.
This horror film breaks the core elements of horror that used "bad seeds" as a fuss in previous similar films, and creates an alternative nightmare for adoptive families through age fraud. The fresh "thriller point", coupled with the shocking acting skills of the 10-year-old girl Isabel Foreman who played the role of an adult dwarf, made the low-cost "Orphan Resentment" highly recognized among heavy-duty movie fans.
What's interesting is that today, several years later, when referring to this "Orphan Resentment", there will still be many people who will tell you seriously: "This is based on real events." In fact, this is a strange misunderstanding , the source of the misunderstanding comes from an adoption koan that happened in reality.
"Evil Raised" House
The North American release date of "The Orphan" is July 24, 2009, and the earliest the beginning of the case can only be traced back to 2010, because that year for the Barnetts living in Indiana (Barnetts) , is a year that transforms family fortunes. As in the movie, this is a seemingly very happy family of five, and the Barnetts and their three sons can live smoothly without adding family members. But the hostess Christine Barnett has always longed for the "big family", to be precise, wanted another girl, but unfortunately she suffered from pregnancy complications at that time, and the doctor announced that she could no longer bear children on her own. So the couple resolutely contacted the adoption agency and expressed their firm will to add a girl to the family.
In May of that year, the Barnetts received a call from the Florida Adoption Center, informing them that they had a girl who was looking for an adoptive family, but that she needed to be fully prepared because the 7-year-old girl from Ukraine was born with a child. Spondylo-epiphyseal dysplasia, will never grow taller in this life, and will still be a dwarf even as an adult. According to the rules of the adoption agency, couples who intend to adopt are generally only given 24 hours to consider, and if no response is received after a day, the agency will find other families for the girl.
The Barnetts agreed without hesitation, and immediately flew to Florida to take Ukrainian girl Natalia Grace back to their home. Like Isabelle Foreman, who played the terrifying adopted daughter in the movie, this Natalia has chestnut hair, dark brown eyes, and a sweet angelic face. At the same time, they also found that the little angels have inconvenient legs and feet and need to rely on assistive devices to move.
For Kristin, however, none of the "problems" with Natalia were a problem. Her eldest son Jacob is also a so-called "problem child". He suffers from severe autism, but at the same time, he has demonstrated his amazing talent in physics. He is also well-known in the industry. The TV station has also interviewed him. Kristen is also seen as a model of successful motherhood and has written THE SPARK, a parenting book on how to raise Jacob. Kristin is running a children's day care center with a partner, and taking care of children is her forte.
On the surface, the Barnetts are finally consummated. They treat Natalia as if they were gone, the whole family barbecues together, and travels together... Everything looks so good, but it's a pity that this kind of beauty has been maintained for less than a year. collapse. Just a few months into the new life, the new member gradually left the family - Natalia left the house every three days, and the Barnetts slowly stopped mentioning this daughter. In July 2012, a family of five immigrated to Canada in 2013 because the eldest son Jacob was exceptionally admitted to a Canadian Institute of Physics Theory - yes, it was "a family of five", and they brought Natalia. Stayed in a rented apartment in Lafayette, Indiana.
In other words, Natalia, who was only 9 years old since then, has lived a single life and took care of herself completely. According to her own later, she can only eat canned food non-stop this year. A year later, in 2014, Natalia had to move out of the apartment because the rent was due. That year, the Barnetts divorced, and they didn't seem to want to continue to accept their adopted daughter. Natalia could only obey the arrangement of her adoptive parents and moved to another residence. During this period, it was her neighbor who always took care of her— - Pastor Antwan and his wife, this kind couple has raised 5 children, they don't mind taking in one more, so they took care of Natalia like this for 2 years. During this period, the couple decided to "take over" the abandoned Natalia and formally applied to become their legal guardian in March 2016, but this application was rejected.
In Natalia's file, her date of birth is written "September 4, 1989", which means that she is already a 26-year-old adult, and adults cannot adopt adults. The Antwans couldn't believe that the girl who was less than 1 meter tall had already been judicially modified by the Barnetts. This means that even if the adoptive parents who brought Natalia home from the adoption agency completely cut ties with her, it seems to be legally compliant.
In order to save Natalia from this "bad family" and become her legal guardian, the Antwans found her original adoptive parents, hoping that the two could go through the procedure to change back to Natalia's date of birth. reject. As a result, prosecutors in Indiana put the Barnetts on trial for "abandonment charges."
"Wicked Girl" Resentment
In September 2019, the divorced Michael Barnett and Christine returned to the United States. After carrying the notoriety of "abandonment", they told a terrifying "truth" that was completely different from the open lawsuit. The details can be It is said to be a remake of "The Orphan's Resentment". According to the two of them in an interview with the "Daily Mail", the moment they brought Natalia back from the adoption center, doubts arose. First, Christine took Natalia into the bathroom to take a shower, and when she undressed her, she found that the 7-year-old girl had grown thick body hair. Second, Natalia does not seem to speak her native Ukrainian at all, and speaks English with no accent at all. What's even more outrageous is that Christine discovered that the child had a period.
The couple were rightly suspicious of Natalia's age, so they gave her about four bone-age tests before and after. At first they had their family doctor take a test, and the bone age was determined to be at least 14 years old. So in June 2010 and 2012, the Barnetts took her to a children's hospital for a bone age test, which found that her bone age was about 11 years old. However, Michael Barnett's attending physician believed that the results measured by the children's hospital were inaccurate, and Natalia's congenital disease also made the test more difficult. He mentioned Natalie in a letter. Before entering the Barnett family, Ya was adopted by at least 2 families in different regions, and she was obviously not born in 2003, but just pretended to be a child during her adoption.
