The official announcement that I have been expecting and dreading has been released. Read it here: http://vietnam.usembassy.gov/adoption_warning0408.html
And here is the Embassy's Summary of Irregularities in Adoptions in Vietnam: http://vietnam.usembassy.gov/irreg_adoptions042508.html
Please take a moment to go to VVAI and read Nicki's post on all this. It's long, but she's done an excellent job of summing it all up- much better than I can do right now. If you are a friend or family member who still doesn't quite understand what the big hold-up is with our adoption (because I've done a poor job of keeping you informed), it's worth your time.
I'm going to go soak in the tub and sob for a while. Talk to you later.
