Here is what happened:

The mysterious case of Natalia Grace, the Ukrainian orphan who was on the receiving end of serious accusations from multiple adoptive families, has been the subject of a docuseries. The docuseries, “The Curious Case of Natalia Grace: Natalia Speaks,” delved into the allegations made against her by her adoptive parents, Michael and Kristine Barnett, who claimed that she was an adult with malicious intentions. Following the Barnetts’ decision to sever ties with Natalia, the Mans family took her in, only to later express similar concerns and issues with her behavior, ultimately deciding to end their relationship with her as well.

In a major twist, a DNA test conducted by a medical lab revealed that Natalia was approximately 22 years old as of August 2023, indicating that she would have been around 9 years old when she initially moved in with the Barnetts. Natalia confronted Michael in the docuseries, and he offered her a tearful apology, to which she responded with forgiveness. The Barnetts were subsequently brought up on neglect charges related to their move to Canada, with Michael being found not guilty in 2022 and prosecutors dropping their case against Kristine in March 2023.
