Well, this sucks...

The official word is in. The new requirement is effective starting August 6th. There is no way I've been submitted for PINK already, so Kevin being in my arms forever has been delayed by 1-2 weeks. Now it's looking like September for pickup and I'm pissed. Some people are taking that news better than I, but MOST of them are either already home or early in the process. If I was still even in PGN, this wouldn't sound that bad. It's all a matter of perspective, I guess. When you thought you were just mere weeks from bringing your child home, and then find out that it's more like a month or 5 weeks, it pisses you off. Or, at least, it pisses me off. ACK! I need to go lick my wounds...

You are not alone. I too am pretty pissed off at this point. I am ready to go down there and take him for the DNA test myself. So close...yet so far. I can't even believe this...words cannot explain...

I'm really sorry, Tami. :(

Tam--you could still sneak in under the wire. You just need to be submitted before next Monday. It could happen, girl. Keep the faith!

Hang in there, Tam. It DOES suck, there's no two ways about it. I am hoping and praying that us Momma's that are waiting got submitted this week and we don't suffer from this new delay!

Hang in there, Tam. It doesn't really matter how great this new requirement is in theory (I think it is), the fact that it's going to delay Kevin's homecoming stinks. I'm sorry :-(

I agree with your comments - meaning it seems like everyone pleased with the new requirement is either home or very early in process. Not quite the same when you are thinking you are coming home in a matter of weeks. I hope you slide through under the wire.

Ugh! I'm SO sorry, dealys like this so close to the end are gut wrenching. It WILL happen though, that day IS coming, just a little bir farther...you're almost there.

Here's hoping all the best news reaches you this week!!

What disappointing news. I hope time passes more quickly than you expect.
