Here is the test to find whether your mission on earth is finished:
If you're alive, it isn't.
--- Richard Bach

I have come to realize more and more that the greatest disease and the greatest suffering is to be unwanted, unloved, uncared for, to be shunned by everybody, to be just nobody [to no one]
--Mother Teresa

We were not separated at your birth.
It was the moment at which we began our journey toward each other

Visa approval

Well good news, All Lang son babies got approved for their Visas today. This is a relief. Bad news is our flight was scheduled for tonight but the embassy refused to expedite our Visa so we could get home to our other 3 children waiting at home. This was very disappointing but really about what I expected from the embassy. They sure don't seem to go the extra mile for us adoptive parents. It did not really phase them we could be stuck here an extra week because of flights being booked because of the Holiday next week (Costing us a couple of thousand dollars extra). Is it so much to ask for a little compassion? I guess so when we are dealing with the US government.
