WASHINGTON (AP) - The U.S. ambassador to Russia says he hopes the furor surrounding an American woman's decision to send a 7-year-boy home to Moscow alone won't jeopardize adoptions of Russian children by U.S. citizens.
Interviewed on CBS's "The Early Show" from Moscow Tuesday, ambassador John Beyrle said outrage over the incident has been expressed in the United States as well as Russia.
Beyrle also said the boy currently is being attended in a Moscow hospital and is "in good hands."
He said U.S. officials have told Russia "we're willing to talk about some sort of bilateral understanding where we would ensure that these kinds of things could not happen." The boy was put on a flight with a note saying he was violent and had severe psychological problems.
