A lot of you probably know that my wife and I adopted internationally in 2017. I talked about it here back then and answered questions a lot of people had. Well we are nearly 2 years into another adoption. This adoption should have been finalized in December but was delayed due to the political unrest in Hong Kong. Then it should have been completed in May but COVID slowed things down and pushed it back to June. Then in June it was pushed back indefinitely, to the point that our case worker is making plans to redo the visa medical appointment when it expires in October. We have had the opportunity to Skype with our daughter 3 times now and it is getting increasingly more difficult for her to understand that we are actually coming because usually you Skype 1 month before you come.
We have received the court order that awarded us guardianship, but we are unable to travel to bring her home because of Hong Kong travel restrictions. Our agency has told us the best thing to do is contact US senators and representatives so we put out a plea to our friends and family to do that with overwhelming response. The problem is that our sphere of influence is largely Oklahoma based. They have received enough to start looking into it but they told us they need more help from other states.
So if any of you would be willing to contact your senators and representatives on our behalf I would be forever grateful. My wife has everything you need to do so. If you would e-mail her at BepJones@Gmail.com and just say you want to help adopting families bring their child home, she will send you the letter and everything you need.
