This is a sad day. It seems that Vietnam adoptions have been stopped. Corruption seems to be at the basis of the concerns. Vietnam is not going to accept adoption applications from American families after July 1st.
Adoptions with other countries will not be affected from what i understand. Adoptions applications that have already been in progress, where young children have been matched with families, will continue to proceed. There is not time to get new applications processed before the time runs out. That is sort of sad for those who have already adopted a Vietnamese child and wanted to add other children with the same ethnic background.
Around the world there are so many children who need homes. Adoption is a wonderful thing…but, like anything else, it can be corrupted. Poor families can be pressured to put children up for adoption because of financial pressures. Because of that fact as well as people who operate out of greed; many families will not have the option of adopting a child from Vietnam, at the moment. Still, if you have a heart to adopt and love a child giving it a happy, healthy home life…continue to pursue your dream of adoption.
