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.

So the final BIG hoop I have to jump through is The Interview, which is tomorrow at 3:30 at the US Embassy in Kathmandu. I hope I can sleep. I've been nervous about it... it requires a lot of documents, and I don't know what else. It requires my tax return which I didn't bring and had to bother my dear business partner Marion and her husband Zack for at the end of their day and they graciously went to the office and scanned 44 pages into the computer for me, so that I could stop stressing. My accountant could of sent it but insisted that it was included in the 8 pages they sent me. Not possible, so rather than argue I decided to just get er done. My usual MO. That's why I'm here... 3rd to go home in a line of 56... I hope. There's still The Interview. Let you know how it goes tomorrow! I could walk away from The Interview with a visa in my pocket. This is a possibility, and this possibility is VERY exciting!
