Amid Outrageous Demands to Bring Sick Children Home, US State Department Keeps Their Cool
So I go about my life, doing small things every day to advocate for my child. I am not the newbie who got hysterical one year ago, in a roomful of hopeful parents waiting like me, some waiting much longer. Today, I can’t sit around all the time thinking about the awful reality that my child is trapped in. I have learned that with international adoptions, frustration and powerlessness becomes everyone’s new normal.
But sometimes the reality of what we adoptive parents face breaks through.
