I can't imagine having to count on bureaucracy in a situation like that. I would be a nervous wreck. I know these things go through all the time, but knowing your baby is in another country where anything could happen and still will be for months before you take her home? My stomach would be eating itself.
My late-twenties maternal kick in the pants is raging. Little Jade was so cute I almost started crying. She has the biggest smile. I hope everything goes smoothly for them all.
