By the response comments that people post, it is easy to understand what really interests many of you.
You simply want the adoption process to move on so that your children will be home soon. Many have expressed their frustrations through the comments. I hear your cries. It's just that I wish I had the answers.
The process is currently hung up with the Family Court in Korea. There are many pending cases that have been submitted to the court and are waiting for the judges to clear the cases. Unfortunately, the pending cases at the court are still the EPs that have been approved for the year 2012. The EP process has not even begun for 2013. When asked why there is a delay in the court, the agencies didn't know. The agencies are waiting just like you folks.
Please do not blame the agencies, whether they are in your country or in Korea. As you wait the agencies wait with you. All I could guess is that the judges serving at the court are not familiar with adoption process and they are slowly and carefully learning the process. Even for domestic adoption, it is taking long time.
But I don't think the delays in the court will last. I am hoping that once the judges get into the rythm of the flow, the processing should move along much quicker.
I will continue to keep you posted. In the mean time, do not lose your hope.
