Ed and I had a phone interview with our agency yesterday, but rather than talk about airline ticket preference, in-country fees, etc., we got an update on how slow they expect the rest of the process to be. Basically, because of the new procedures, our logged-in dossier is expected to just sit on a desk in Vietnam, possibly for months, because the DIA doesn't have the manpower to approve parent or child dossier while also investigating all the current referrals.
Although a miracle is possible, it is not likely that we will get our son anytime soon. Even by June is now 50/50 at best. I am so upset, I spent the whole day crying yesterday. I no longer believe we are ever going to be parents and it hurts so much.
I truly thank God I have loving, supportive husband who is still keeping the faith, but even he's pretty sad today. I'm going to need to check out for a few weeks till I can even deal with this news. Please pray for us.
