Discouraged

We still don't have a travel date. We were supposed to get it within 7 days after wiring the rest of the money. It's been 15 days. Every day, I email the agency and every day, they say they're still waiting. Last week they said it would probably be between Dec. 4 & 8. Today, I found out our dossiers are held up in Hanoi and they have to be in DaNang before a G&R is scheduled. They're not sure what the holdup is, but now it looks like we're out to Dec. 8-11. Which means not being home for Christmas. We're really upset about this. I thought for sure we'd get our date today, only to find out it's going to be probably several more days before getting it. I know it seems like it's only a few days, but that means the difference in being home for Christmas. It means a difference in airfare because December is more expensive (according to our agent). And worst of all, it means a few days in the life of my son without him knowing us or us holding him. I'm just really upset right now.

Oh Steph - that really REALLY sucks. You must feel totally frustrated beyond belief. I am so sorry. I remember the day I found out our travel was supposed to be postponed a month or two and I was so crushed. It did not turn out that way so just keep the heat on. They are super efficient on the Vietnam side so hopefully you will still get in and out before Christmas!

Stephanie - I feel your pain. Really. I'm reading your post and tearing up - we, too, are waiting to pick up our little boy from Vietnam. We've also been told we could travel any day. If we do travel in Dec. we won't be here for our older son's birthday and perhaps not even Christmas when my parents and siblings are due at our house (we live overseas). I feel your pain.
