They said that she won’t be able to walk at all and she will be of very short stature, ” she revealed via a translator. Anna added, “I didn’t initially want to leave her but the doctors said there is nothing you could do for her. ‘You are young,’ they said. ‘You are 24 years old. Don’t ruin your life, you will have other children,” as reported by Mirror.

Natalia’s birth mother began to cry as she talked before confessing that she had been thinking about Natalia “all those years.” Anna commented on Natalia’s situation in America by saying, “When I found out what happened, that she was abandoned at the age of 13 alone in an apartment, I was simply shocked, obviously.”
