Well, my dossier passed through the MFA (Ministry of Foreign Affairs) and is now headed for the MOE (Ministry of Education) in the region. But the bad news is that the MFA has denied our request to adopt Borya. I'm working with my agency coordinator to see if there is a way to appeal this decision or to let them hear the details of this special case. Generally they just look at the dossier and don't make room for exceptions, but we've got to at least try. I can't give the details as to why it has been denied, but I will try to keep you posted with any updates. This has been a very sad day for me, but I'm trying not to give up hope.
