And we begin....

We started this blog to share our experiences as we adopt a baby from Vietnam. We are very early in the process at this time. We have chosen an agency and will mail our I-600A form tomorrow to the federal government. This form, barring some unforseen circumstance, will lead to our receiving permission from the U.S. government to adopt a foreign-born infant and legally emigrate the child to the U.S.

We have found that there is not much information on the internet for families who are considering adopting a child from Vietnam. This is likely because adoptions from Vietnam to Americans just recently resumed after a moratorium of about 2 1/2 years. So we hope to record our experiences not only for ourselves and our familes and friends, but also to help give prospective adoptive parents a resource in the future.

We have just begun what we believe will be a 20-24 month process before we can bring our child home. Wish us luck!
