Please, please, please help families with this very important Vietnam adoption-related topic.
The letter is self-explanatory, time sensitive and comes from a very reliable source, IAAP.
Finally, something we can *DO* that may make a difference.
CURRENT INFO ON VIET NAMAs of today the deadline of July 1 for all dossiers to be received by the DIA in Hanoi still stands and also the deadline of September 1, 2008 for receiving a referral. Vietnam has stated that all dossiers without a referral by September 1 will be sent back to the agencies. The current estimate is that this could be as many as two thousand dossiers.
You can help encourage the Department of State to work with Vietnam to bring this about by contacting your Senators and Congressmen and asking them to contact the Department of State and ask what they are doing to try to assist the families with dossiers in Vietnam and have they contacted the DIA about extending the deadline.
