They came home heartbroken. And they aren't the only family, just the first one. Harper is 4 years old - how do you explain to an orphaned 4 year old that she finally has a Mum and Dad and a sibling and a real family, that the adoption is complete and she is finally going to have home and family, and then tell her that can't happen? The videos of them saying goodbye to their daughter are heartbreaking, see
here, and here.
They have been blogging about their trip. If she was their natural born daughter, she would not have been denied access back to the US. The new rule does not apply to those children, just those adopted in other countries.
This post was deleted for the following reason: Kinda feeling like this post could be done a lot more fairly than it has been; there may be an interesting story here but as it is it seems more like one side's take being presented as fact. -- cortex
