3 Months

It's been just over 3 months since we received our referral for our sweet baby boy. Unfortunately, our travel to bring him home is still months away. Due to delays on both the US and Vietnam sides, we won't be able to bring him home before the end of the year. We had hoped to have him home before his first birthday in January. It now looks more likely that we will not travel until at least March. There is still a chance it could happen sooner, but it is a long shot.

We are trying to stay positive. It is still very hard knowing our baby boy is growing older everyday without us. We long to hold him in our arms and pray that our delays will be resolved soon. This has been one of the hardest parts of our wait.

I hope to have better news to share soon... A

Oh, that just sucks. I'm so sorry it is taking longer than you expected. It is just so hard, but it will happen, it will!

We are in the same boat! It has been nearly 4 months since we were matched with our son and we are still waiting to file for his visa. We were hoping and praying for Christmas, but now we doubt it. My husband has a good plan if it takes longer though, but it is so hard. He turned 8 months old yesterday. You are NOT alone!!

Andrea,
This is the hardest time-in my opinion it is harder than waiting for the referral to arrive-stay positive, and remember your baby is being loved in Vietnam
You are in our prayers

I am so sorry to hear how long you will have to wait! This has got to be so hard, try to stay positive (easier said than done, right?).
