So Sad and Sorry

I just want to say that I am praying for everyone involved in Vietnam adoptions today. Today is the day that the MOU between the US and Vietnam expired. Anyone who did not have a referral at this point will most likely not be getting one for quite some time. I know that so many of you have been waiting for such extreme amounts of time and are now at a point of not knowing where to turn next. I pray for peace for you and your families.

I have so much that I want to say, but nothing will make anyone feel any better. So just know that I am thinking of you. This is a harsh reality. It kills me that all of the horrible things that have occurred in Vietnam adoptions have to affect everyone, even those not involved. I am especially saddened for the legitimate orphans who truly need a home and will be waiting for so long in an orphanage. It breaks my heart into a million pieces.

I am so sorry. I hope some sort of realistic and effective agreement can be reached.

Amen...I am so sad for the whole community. We did make the "cut off" but now hold our breaths as we wait for approval.
