Then Amber covers the adoption story of Natalia Grace Barnett. In 2010 Michael and Kristine Barnett adopted a Ukranian girl from an orphanage in Florida, Natalia Grace. They were told by the orphanage and by Natalia, that she was a 6-year old with a form of dwarfism called spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia congenita. However, the Barnett's started to suspect that Natalia was not a child, but a grown woman who used her dwarfism to trick a family into providing for her.
