One of my longtime readers wrote and asked me tonight why so many of my posts seemed to be missing. I'm so sorry I didn't think to explain. Since I am still in the (neverending) process of adopting D, it was important I remove any posts having to do with him until he is home. I actually did it several months ago. I hope I got them all. I removed any posts I found with his photo or his full first name spelled out. I also had to remove a great many posts about the orphanage for the same reason. Just to be safe. I'll repost all of them (about 20 in all) once he is home.
And in that vein, I would truly appreciate the prayers of everyone reading this. Kemerovo continues to put a freeze on US families adopting from the region. It's hard to know which docs to continue to keep updating and which ones to just hold off on until things clear up. I may not be talking about D very much, but he is very much in my constant thoughts these days. I haven't spoken to him since Russian Christmas. And Vanya (older boy from the orphanage) just posted a photo of him on his Russian FB page and he looks so sad and so much older, it kind of put me over the edge. I had to walk away from the computer and go cry long and hard into my pillow.
If you pray, please pray that he is kept safe. That is my primary concern. Second to that is that he not lose hope. Most importantly, please pray that the powers that be in Kemerovo have a change of heart and open things up again -- soon. I don't know how I could possibly survive another failed adoption.
