The last of the thirteen 2007 NOID cases has finally cleared after 10 months. Karla is a first time mom who has been in Hanoi with her daughter Madison the entire
time. They are en route to the US, landing in LAX this
For anyone keeping track, that means that all of those NOIDs were
overturned. Every single one. I hope this news gives those who are
currently struggling with their own cases some hope. Anything is
possible! It's not over 'til it's over
For those of you who are wondering a NOID (notice of intent to deny) is given by the US government (USCIS). They do so when they have specific reasons to deny an adoption.
As you have read ALL NOIDs were overturned! Take into consideration it cost a family THOUSANDS of dollars to fight a NOID (they receive the NOID from the US Gov.)
Now all of the RFEs families (40+)...we have been told there are no "specifics" to why we are not receiving approval but not enough evidence to give us a NOID, so we do as they request and do our best "good faith effort" to locate birth parent(s). Again, pray for this process and all of the families who continue to be seperated from their babies in TQ. We are just 1 of those families!
