How much longer.....

I really don't know how much longer I can go without some sort of news. Our paperwork has been in Vietnam for almost a month without hearing a single thing. I understand that the power was out for a while and that slows things down, but I am desperate for something. I am agonizing over the fact that my son is just about to lose his best friend. It's really hard knowing he is going to lose a friend and I won't be there to hold him and comfort him through the ordeal. Please pray my little boy handles it well and that our pictures will let him know we are coming soon.

After watching the video from cindy I have been praying for your little guy as Alex leaves him next week. Hopefully it won't be long before he comes home too.

(hugs) I know exactly what you're going through and I know just how terribly agonizing it is to not have any news, and to not have any idea of when to expect an update. And I'm so sorry that Alex and Samuel are not able to go home together. I was really hoping that's how it would work out. Our paperwork was just 3 weeks behind another Vinh Long family who was adopting one of Sera's good friends (and bed mate), and they traveled before us. My heart broke for Sera knowing she was seeing yet another friend leave as she stayed there. But now I've realized that seeing her friends leave before her really helped prepare her for her big moment. Samuel will be in my prayers...and you too Mom. :)

What a hard situation. I know first hand how close the boys seem to be. I can only imagine how hard it will be for him when Alex leaves. I am so sorry. I will defintely be praying for him. I will also be praying that you get some good news soon!!!!!
