On Aug. 6th, 2010 the USA suspended adoptions in Nepal.
I was stranded Nepal with my adopted son while I waited for the US Govt. to grant him a Visa. I was able to return home with him on January 11, 2011 after nearly 4 months in Nepal.
Children are abandoned by their families each and every day in Nepal. As Buddhism suggests, let's send our prayers on the wind to help these children who have been left behind.

I GOT IT!
Wow. Today finally arrived. I walked out of the US Embassy at a little after 2pm Nepali time with a VISA in hand, and all my immigration documents. What a happy, happy, happy, happy, happy moment. It really does feel like some sort of surreal miracle. We are going to celebrate at my favorite little coffee shop with a banana lassi for Pukar and something yummy for mommy. I've dreamed of this moment for a long, long time. Holy cow, Ganesha, the obstacles have finally been removed and the light is green. I'M COMING HOME! I'M REALLY COMING HOME!
