Thank you for being patient. I made another inquiry to the Ministry of Health and Welfare (MOHW) yesterday. I called a couple of agencies in Korea two nights ago and they haven't heard anything. But I strongly believe the EPs will be issued soon. If the MOHW restarts the EP process, I am sure the agencies will be the first to hear about it. If I do hear from MOHW, I will certainly let you all know.
Many have written to me saying that they have waited over 15 months, and this experience has been very trying and hard. My heart is with you all. But most of all, my heart goes out to all the children that have waited long and have grown attached to their foster mothers taking care of them, and to separate the children from them when they leave Korea - that will be extremely hard for the children and the foster mothers as well.
That is why it is so important that children come home when they are in their single digit months. Something needs to change in Korea between the government and the agencies to avoid this from happening. There is no reason why a child referred must wait 15 months to go home. This is really not right.
