Natalia claims she was a child when she came from Ukraine to the United States.

Natalia, who has a form of dwarfism, says that she was initially happy at the Barnett’s, but claims that after she had surgery, the relationship changed.

They allege that they took Natalia to doctors who tested her bone density, and that those results, together with other physical signs of age, led them to conclude she was much older, so they went to court, and Natalia was declared 22 years old.
