During the past few days rumors have been circulating regarding the 10 accepted dossiers. For those of you tracking the global chat rooms, there is talk that the Ministry was asking each agency to submit the 10 dossiers according to the following age groups (while accepting application for at least 2 special needs children).
0 to 1 years = 2 families
1 to 3 years = 2 families
3 to 5 years = 2 families
5 to 10 years = 3 families
Above 10 years = 1 family
I spoke to my agency today and they assured me that nothing official has been announced or posted by the Ministry on this subject.
It seems like this process had to be easier back when people spent smoke signals to get the word out. Now, one person in Paris posts a rumor that they read on a blog from a woman in Poland and then the entire global blogosphere that is tracking this process is up in arms. I find that until we "really" know (and I use that term VERY loosely given this is international adoption), we just have to focus on getting the dossier finalized, taking the required education courses and learning as much about Nepal as possible.
On that note, did you know that Nepal is the only country in the world whose flag is not square or rectangular shaped? There you have it.
