Russian woman allowed to see son one day after publicizing her case on Taiwan News
By: Keoni Everington, Taiwan News, Staff Writer
The 24-year-old victim, Anna Kuznetsova, alleges that the 38-year-old father of her son, surnamed Miaw, and his family, conspired to deceive her into signing the papers under false pretenses and without an English translation or legal counsel before kidnapping her child. After Taiwan News reported on her plight last week, Kuznetsova says that she received an enormous outpouring of support from readers and that she was finally able to see her son on Friday (Dec. 11).
Kuznetsova last saw her son on Dec. 3, when the Taiwanese grandparents took him on an unannounced "trip." It was not until that day she realized a Chinese-language document she had signed in January was actually adoption papers, and her desperate legal battle to regain custody of her son began.
After bringing her case to the public on Dec. 10, Kuznetsova says that she received many phone calls and emails from Taiwanese and foreign residents offering assistance. She told Taiwan News that she was shocked when Miaw messaged her on Friday and said she could pick up her son from kindergarten that day. [FULL STORY]
