Kristine Barnett claims adopted daughter Natalia Grace was really 22 | Metro News "A mum accused of abandoning her nine-year-old adopted daughter claims she is actually an adult who tried to kill her family. Kristine Barnett, 45, and her ex-husband Michael Barnett, 43, adopted Natalia Grace, a Ukrainian girl with dwarfism, in 2010. In 2013, they left her to live by herself in a flat in Indiana, before they moved away to Canada. Police have now charged the couple with two counts of neglect of a dependent – but Ms Barnett says Natalia is actually a 30-year-old woman, who was 22 at the time of her adoption. She claims her adopted daughter pretended to be a child, but that the family soon realised she had periods, adult teeth and pubic hair. Natalia is also alleged to have used grown up language, telling her new mother, who ran a ‘little school’: ‘These children are exhausting, I don’t know how you do it.’ At the time of her adoption, Natalia was supposed to be six years old."
