Suspension of dossier processing?

As they say in the newscasts, "This just in ...":

Joint Council confirms the suspension of dossier processing by the Kazakhstan Embassy and Consulates pending the finalization of a review of adoption cases by the Kazakhstan government. The following represents our understanding of the suspension. The suspension of dossier processing by the Kazakhstan Embassy/Consulate is effective immediately.

Right after I read this, I rec'd word from my agency coordinator that they have rec'd no official word regarding suspensions. Who knows? This adoption stuff is not for the faint of heart ...

Mother's Day?!?

I got a letter from Borya yesterday, and this is part of what he wrote:

We had a Mother's Day event. I played on stage. All the teachers liked it. Aleksey made photos from the concert. I congratulate you, dear mother on this Mother's day. And I wish you love, health and happiness.

WTF?!? What kind of sick, twisted place celebrates Mother's Day at an ORPHANAGE?

Happy Birthday!

Borya celebrated his 13th birthday yesterday (3/11)! I'm hoping and praying that his next birthday will be celebrated in his home, surrounded by his family all singing to him, with a sloppy, homemade cake and flickering candles on the table in front of him.
