Nothing new from Moscow
Tuesday, November 28, 2006
Let's call it a "non update update". Our agency's hotline was updated just to let us know that unfortunately there wasn't any news from last week. It's unfortunate because the head of the Russian program for our agency was in Moscow before Thanksgiving.

But, them's the breaks. She said the main issue right now is just getting the MOE to give the details of the required documents in Government Decree #654. Although the actual list of documents is in the decree as with just about every law in every country there's a big difference from what the law "says" it requires and how those requirements are dealt with in practice.

It's a little troubling that these details are not yet conveyed to the various adoption agencies since even after documents are submitted, it could take a month or longer for the actual accreditation to be given. So we'll just have to continue to wait.
