Learned from my coordinator today that Borya was never placed on the database. Kazakh orphans have to be on this database for six months before they are legally free for adoption. So even if, miracle of miracles, the MFA decided to reverse their decision and grant me permission to adopt Borya, it can't happen now for six more months. So a boy that I met 5 years ago next month, reconnected with 2 1/2 years ago, and began adoption proceedings for nearly a year ago, will have to wait till at least January of 2009 before we could
possibly adopt him. He will then be nearly 14 yrs old, and I met him when he was 8. What....is wrong ....with this picture?!
