Stalled - again

Well, we finally received our "update" letter from HCMC. It reads as follows:

May 21, 2008

Dear Mr. & Mrs. PAP,

This is in reference to the Form I-600, Petition to Classify Orphan as an Immediate Relative, which you have filed in behalf of the beneficiary [The Minute], received by this office on January 25, 2008.

As previously notified, the US Government has not been able to obtain evidentiary verification from the hospital/orphanage administrators and provincial officials, which is required to complete the field investigation and continue with adjudication of your case. The CIS office in Ho Chi Minh City has sought the assistance from the DoH in setting up an amicable agreement with the hospital/orphanage administrators and provincial officials so that current and future investigations can be processed more expeditiously. However, to date, we have not reached a final agreement. Understand it is our utmost priority to resolve this issue and continue with the processing of your case. Adjudication will immediately resume once the US Government is able to conduct and complete the field verification.

This office will continue to provide you with an update on the status of your case. It is requested that you allow thirty (30) days before making an inquiry. Beyond that time frame, you may send your inquiries to our mailbox at XXXXXXX. Thank you for your cooperation.

Sincerely,

MAR

Oh dear. I can't even imagine the disappointment you feel AGAIN.
If the lesson here is to learn patience....this is overkill.

Good luck. I just hope you hear something sooner than they suggest.
