http://www.kurer-sreda.ru/2013/12/06/124391 "Recently agency staff asked Sofia to help them. But she just walked off on her own business, ignoring the request. Nobody was thrown out from the hostel. She came, packed up her stuff and said that she is moving out to live with her friend" Is it true?

Are you kidding me?? This whole article is so poorly written! Purely fiction.

I understand you can't work, can't live with your bio-father, and are essentially homeless. What is the best way to send contributions to you? Does Paypal money make it to you?

Paypal works fine, it's a bit difficult to access.. but manageable! :)

Hi Sofia! What's been going on lately? I'm following all the support groups, but not sure if there's progress currently. Appreciate not everything can be shared in public, just give us hope that there're positive changes expected.

I have hope that things will work smoothly and so much appreciate all the support! Currently just working on the immigrational issues.

"Too difficult to handle"? You make it sound like as if they consider you a psychopath or a sociopath. Now THOSE are TRULY difficult to handle, because they are incapable of showing remorse, guilt or shame. Too difficult to handle would having the pólice called on you because of domestic violence. I

Agreed, now if only someone could tell her that!

So if you didn't know any Russian how do you communicate with all your Russian friends and yell back in at other people?

I *didn't* know any russian, but after almost three years, my language skills are at least existent! :)

Your mother is a prestigious university professor. How has this affected her job?

She used to be a professor, but from my understanding she no longer works there

Are you afraid that since your mom and step-dad got away with this that they might try this with your little sister too since her father is not your step-dad? Or was she born in the us?

She was born in the US!:)

Has your parents asked you any questions from this web site? I would say it would be a good place to start to patch things over. :-)

They very well could, but it honestly doesn't make a difference who is asking them. I answer all of them to the best of my ability

Now that the lives of your families are all over the web and being investigated, do you feel vindicated? Why would someone take you in without knowing that you won't hurt them in a similar way? I don't understand why you won't get along with your family. You seem to hate them all with your actions.

Going to the media was really my last option, my time is ticking and at some point I have to take back control of my life! My intentions never were to hurt them, but at the end of the day I was TRICKED and decieved by my own parents. I came to a new country under the impression that this was going to be a vacation. I don't hate them, but I hate the fact that I was thrown away like garbage at the time that I needed them the most. All because I was "too difficult to handle". I was a child, they were adults.

You probably don't like thinking about Igor, but did he make the assumption that you spoke Russian before you met him at the aeroport? How could a man take in a teen knowing that she won't be able to communicate? You would think he would have supplied you with a place to live where English is spoken

He knew right from the start that I didn't speak Russian. I really don't know what he was thinking, if he was even was thinking.

You're being told she's not home, when you can hear her voice. That's absolutely baffling! You could you have done to make her pretend you don''t exist? And is she "busy" doing what?

I have no idea, she's only nine years old. I just really hope that she doesn't grow up thinking that I just gave up on her or just never cared enough to call her.

I am not trying to attack your mother, but I am a mother myself and it is a sick thing your mother is doing. No reasonable mother just throws their child aside for two and a half years (with no end in sight), or doesn't even visit, no matter what the child has done. I am sorry this happened to you.

Thank you for the support! I hope that I will be able to return home soon! :)

With all the media coverage that you are getting, has your parents reacted to it in any way?

I had a very negative reaction from my mom after all the media coverage. A hysteric emotional phone call from my mother saying that she was in fear of her life and her husband's life. In my opinion it was totally uncalled for and over dramatic
