A letter from my senator

Thank you for contacting me about adoptions from Vietnam.

You are not alone in expressing concerns about the pace of adoptions in Vietnam.  In response to many letters from XXXXX, my staff has contacted officials at the Department of Homeland Security to raise your concerns.  Currently there is only one full-time Department of Homeland Security official in Ho Chi Minh City who is assisted by two local staff.  However, subsequent to our inquiry, an additional Department of Homeland Security officer has been assigned to assist in the backlog of adjudications.  My office has been in regular contact with officials from the Departments of State and Homeland Security to reinforce to them the need to expedite adoptions in Vietnam.  I will continue to closely monitor the situation.

As a member of the Congressional Coalition on Adoption, I share your concern that the United States remains a strong advocate for fair, transparent, and compassionate adoption policies worldwide.

Thank you, again, for contacting me. 




Awww, that's the closest thing I have had to a love letter in a long time!
