So we just got off the phone with a really connected American woman who lives in Beijing. She's pretty much THE go to person for adoptions for people living in China. She told us that nobody can adopt right now. That the 2 gov'ts are hashing it out over the regulations. This all started Apr. of 2008. So we are too late to qualify under the old regulations (which are much less strict).
So we ran, jumped, and hit our back knee on the hurdle...flinging ourselves into the other lane.
But we will dust off our too short track shorts, get back up (enter slow 'Chariots of Fire' music) and keep running.
We'd love your continued thoughts. While they hash it out, we might not be able to pursue adoption until the fall or even next year.
