Sigh. We’re in the final stages of this adoption and I’m getting irritated with my agency. It is like pulling teeth to get a status on where our package is. I sent a list of questions to my regional coordinator early this week - specifically “do we have the article 5 letter?”, “has our packet been translated?” and “has our packet been sent to the courts yet?” Those were my questions. Finally, after two days, I got this answer back… “We’re waiting on the courts.”
I read this as “yes, we have everything and it’s been submitted” but my husband says it could mean anything because it says so darned little. So I write back to my coordinator to ask “so, does that mean it’s been sent to the courts?”
Nothing. No answer at all. Two days later and not even a shadow of a response.
I know that my hounding them will not do anything constructive. I know that they can’t really *do* anything right now, it’s all in the hands of other people in another country. But they can at least keep me updated so I have some idea where we stand. Is that too much to ask?? Am I being unreasonable here?
