Ditto above & also, there are powers outside the adoption agency that are concerned with an "international incident".
"One bad apple spoils the basket" is the world of ignorance & fear that we live in. Those extreamly rare cases, non-the-less, led to Russia blocking (some) adoptions by the USA.
Of course, the unfortunate results effect u, ur wife & that waiting child.
This is what I call, "Fear of the many, outweigh the needs of the one"....aka International Policy.
It's a sad day indeed.
