The good news: Our birth parent interviews are complete.
The bad news: They requested DNA on one of our boys.
DNA is easily an 8-week process, and it's very expensive (like $500+ expensive). Then, it's safe to say that it will be a month or so to process the actual visas.
Technically, we could bring one of our sons home, and leave the other behind. I refuse to do that. These little guys have lived at the orphanage for 2.5 years now, and are all each other have. I will not do that to them.
The bottom line: Our boys will not be home this year.
I feel like I've been punched in the stomach. I just cannot understand this.
I am so mad. And angry. And sad.
Devastated would be the closest word to describe it.
My heart feels shattered. Do you know how many versions of our family Christmas letter I had composed in my mind, all announcing our two new additions? How many visions of a Christmas tree with presents for 5 little ones? Or how my heart breaks when I see just how much my little guy so badly want his brothers home?
I just wish I could understand why this has to be so difficult.
All I want is for my babies to be home.
