I am so sorry for all the twists and turns your adoption is taking. I am sure in the end it will all be clear to you and you will find your little one. It won't be easy but as I am sure you know adoption never is but in the end it is sooo worth it! Hang in there and thanks for the update!
Oh I am so sorry for your frustration. I was in the middle of a China adoption in 2007 when my first 2 foster daughters became available for adoption, the China adoption agency assured me that since my girls had already been with me for 2 years , that China would not hold that against me and I could proceed with the Intl adoption.
The next year I was about 6 months away from my referral, after waiting almost 3 whole years, and I got my daughter Ava Marie placed with me as a foster child, we knew that her case would go straight to adoption, so I informed the China adoption agency. I knew it would mean that my China adoption would be over, they don't let you adopt if you have more than 2 children AND you are single.
In the end I have 4 adopted daughters through fostering. I am sure this is what God meant for me all along. I did lose about $10,000 to the China adoption, but I have 4 beautiful daughters in the long run, so I believe it was all for the best! And I wrote off that money as a donation to the agency!
Praying for your 4th!

Hence the title of my blog
Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong
Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow
Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom
But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
