An American family adopted Russian-born Dmitri Stewart at the age of three. But the young Dmitri never really felt like he fitted in with them. And when his adoptive parents later had kids of their own, he knew for certain that he wasn’t wanted. In fact, the family had turned to the internet to find somewhere to dump the son they’d adopted.
Dmitri’s life began on the outskirts of Moscow in Russia. Yet although he was living in an orphanage, Dmitri was not alone. With him was his older brother, Andrey. Then, sometime in the late 1990s, an American family adopted the two boys and moved them to Florida.
According to Dmitri, though, the family relocated to Fife, Scotland, in 2004 after Dmitri alleged that his adoptive parents – William and Victoria Stewart – had physically abused him. Although the claims were never proven, the relationship with the Stewarts was apparently a difficult one.
