An eight-year-old girl adopted by a family in the US has told her former Romanian foster family who raised her for eight years to “stop talking nonsense” after they launched a custody case.
According to local media, little Sorina Sacarin was raised by the Saramat foster family in the city of Baia de Arama in the western Romanian county of Mehedinti.
She was recently adopted by a Romanian family settled in the United States and in a message for her former guardians, the girl said: “Mrs and Mrs Mariana and Vasile Saramat, thank you for raising me until I was eight years old. I’m doing well with this family, they love me and I love them too.
“I take care of myself, I feed myself, I have nice clothes and I dress nice, the teachers at school are also very nice, the school is good, I play piano, I swim, I do gymnastics.
“I love them and they love me, so please stop talking nonsense. If you stop doing that, we could come to Romania to visit you.”
According to local media, the Saramat foster family are battling in court to annul the adoption because they would like to adopt the girl themselves, however they have been refused over the years.
Reports said that the unnamed Romanian family in the US won custody in June and little Sorina moved to North America the following month.
The foster family appealed the decision, but were reportedly overruled in September and are continuing their legal battle for custody of the girl.
