News Links

This post is really nothing fancy.  I’ve simply put links to some of the many, many articles, stories and briefings regarding developments in L’s country.  Some of the information is hopeful and some not so much.  Of course, the initial news stories are a bit irrelevant at this point, but I thought I’d share for anyone interested in the background details.  I have tried to put them in order (with the newest at the top) and will attempt to add more as any new and relevant information is shared.  For those families in the process, our agencies are keeping in contact, the DOS (Department of State) and USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) have held a couple of conference calls and are working to keep families informed. 
 Really at this instant, no one has a clear cut explanation, so we all continue to wait.
Thanks for keeping L and her mama in your prayers.
