Washington authorities have accused an adoptive mother of forcing her youngster to endure hundreds of reckless, medically unnecessary doctor’s appointments and procedures.
31-year-old Sophie Hartman lives in King County, Washington. The woman adopted a 6-year-old girl and her sister, who had been orphans in Zambia, Africa. The 6-year-old suffers from a neurological disorder called alternating hemiplegia of childhood (AHC), according to Hartman.
Based on her assertion that the child has AHC, since 2016, Hartman reportedly took her to nearly 500 doctor visits for various reported ailments.
