A huge step

This was the statement that we received last week about Korea.  This is what the US department of state posted about Korea signing the Hague.   The Hague convention is a huge step that will help in the long run of adoptions from Korea, but we are all hoping it isn't another bump in the road to delay our current adoptions.  It's amazing how you read about things like the Hague in school, but you never think something like that will affect you in real life.....
Easton, your adoption has been full of surprises!  One day when you read this, I hope you can understand that we wanted you home so badly, but it wasn't up to us.  We are still here, waiting.  We love you little one!!

Adoption Notice: The Republic of Korea Signs the Hague Adoption Convention

On May 24, 2013, the Republic of Korea ( South Korea ) signed the Convention on Protection of Children and Co-operation in Respect of Intercountry Adoption (the Convention). This is the first step for South Korea in becoming a Convention partner.  Adoptions between the United States and South Korea , however, are not yet subject to the requirements of the Convention and relevant implementing laws and regulations.  According to the Ministry of Health and Welfare, which will be designated as South Korea 's Central Authority, there is no set date when South Korea will deliver its instrument of ratification or when the Convention will enter into force with respect to South Korea .
