Goings on

Not much to report here. Our agency had another conference call...surprise surprise. NO NEWS. One thing I CAN (and will!) say about our agency is that they ARE definitely working hard to resolve this/these issues. I know that I feel like nothing is happening, and of course, VIetnam is closing this year (NOT our agency's fault!), but our agency is working their buts off trying to get us our babies. And in fact, "people" are listening. Senator Dole (from my home state) and her office is VERY on board with helping us out. Which is great. It's mainly b/c our agency and many families FROM our agency (myself included) have been putting in time writing letters, making calls, and in some cases, even meeting with the senators and representatives in person. The thing is, EVERYONE wants to bring our babies home. Everyone EXCEPT the idiots in CIS in Vietnam who obviously couldn't care less about my son turning 10 months old tomorrow...in a crib, in his orphanage that desperately needs the bed for another baby...

Anyway, I digress. The point I wanted to make was that people do appear to be making a difference, but this kind of thing is S-L-O-W. The up-side? Our agency PROMISES we WILL bring The Minute home. And that is what I am holding on to. All of you waiting families, I know a number of you read this blog, we are making a difference. WE WILL BRING OUR BABIES HOME.

In the meantime, I'm going to try to go back to enjoying work, socializing, and the lovely sunny day outside. Or at the very least, I'm going to enjoy the hot cuppa' I have in front of me.
