If you’ve seen the horror film The Orphan, the following story is about to sound eerily familiar. Kristine and Michael Barnett believed they had adopted a 6-year old orphan from Ukraine. However, soon after the adoption took place the couple noticed the allegedly 6-year old Natalia wasn’t acting her age; in fact, she seemed far too mature for a 6-year old, both mentally and physically. After accusing Natalia of trying to harm the couple and their family, they filed a motion to court to have the date on the girl’s birth certificate changed from 2003 to 1989. This wasn’t the end of the story, though, and things only got more complicated from then on. This article examines the still-unresolved case of the mysterious Natalia Grace Barnett.
