In April 2010, former Shelbyville, Tennessee resident, Torry Hansen sent her then, adopted Russian son back to his native land, Russia. Hansen sent Artyom Saveliev with a letter that explained his violent behavior and that she no longer wished to be his mother.
A Tennessee judge ruled in favor of the boys caregivers and awarded them $150,000 in child support. Hansen appealed the original decision citing that she has an inability to pay the $1,000 owed per month in child support. Now residing in Redding, California, Hansen reported being unemployed and having no income.
