Oh Well

I am sure that hundreds of adoptive families wrote to the White House for today's meeting. This is what we got:

Donald, from Anaheim, CA writes:
With international adoptions taking much longer to complete, how is the USCIS addressing requests to lengthening the time that I171H and other related documents are valid?

Dr. Emilio González
Thanks for your question, Donald. We are very much aware of this issue and recognize that there are concerns with the process. Currently, USCIS is closely reviewing the existing regulations regarding the I171H which is the inital step in the approval process for parents seeking international adoptions.

I think this answer screams politician, no real answer, no admittance of guilt or promise of a solution. Too bad.

Unless the politicians are actually going through an adoption themselves or a close family member is then that's the only time they will actually push to get things done.
ie.If its not affecting me then why should I care.

I know, its the cost fo the whole thing that gets to me, time wise its not the end of the world, but I'd rather spend all that extra money on the baby!
