why we're happy to be Americans
Sometimes it's hard for our brains to understand the way much of the rest of the world functions. Here's the latest passport update from our adoption agency... NO passports again this week. Because they formed a committee and are now handling the passports differently, it will take a few weeks for them to get that process in place. Diku [from our orphanage] has still said that they are to release a list of 1500+ passports to be signed. When asked how long it will take them to then sign those, he said a couple of weeks. No one knows how this will go... How we wish we could get our task oriented selves on a plane and go "help" them issue these passports. It's hard to be an American when you spend much of your time working with the developing world!
