Yep, that's right... I'm angry! Sometimes this adoption stuff just gets to me. I'm SICK and TIRED and DONE with this whole thing!!!!!!!!!!!!! We've had FOUR YEARS of heart-break trying to adopt domestically. Last summer we turned to international adoption, and now it looks like we might not get Isabella home in time because our STUPID Department of State doesn't want any more Guatemalan children in the US. That's the only explanation I can think of. Yesterday's hopeful news that the Hague/Ortega cut off would be pushed back 4 months is being shut down by our own Department of State. Here's a quote from Guatadopt:
"US Consul General John Lowell is once again attempting to interfere with Guatemala's rights as a sovereign nation. He is apparently requesting a meeting with all the Guatemalan parties in Congress in an attempt to strong arm them into not delaying Ortega and the Hague."
Can you believe this baloney? I HATE this. I'm FULLY aware of the fact that the DOS is limiting pre-approvals right now. That's SO crap! They can pre-approve those visas within days if they want to. They certainly did last month. Now the wait is back to 60 days. DOS doesn't want anymore children to have the chance of getting through PGN by the end of the year. Guess what? That's us. We can't catch a break.
I know that God can move mountains, but I think sometimes He chooses not to in our case. My heart is broken for Isabella. My heart is just broken.
