I don't know what to say...
There's a lot of...um...stuff happening with Vietnamese adoptions right now, in the past month or so. I'd be lying if I said it didn't rattle me to my core this morning when I read this Notice From the US State Department concerning Adoption from Vietnam. Honestly, I thought I was going to throw up when I read it.
I contacted my agency today, who asssured me that Lana's adoption was entirely ethical, that the fact that it was approved by the Embassy indicates that the Embassy didn't question our particular adoption.
I'm just...I guess I don't have any words right now.
I love my daughter. I believe she needed a home. I believe she needed a family. I'm choosing to believe that, in the grand scheme of the universe, she truly belongs with us, and that we were always meant to be a family. I don't know how to exist otherwise.
