  • I would just encourage adoptive parents of children from Nepal to not give up. It is a very difficult process to adoptd from Nepal because of it being so poor, the political turmoil, and inefficiency. But if you presevere, it will happen. You can visit my website and read about my adopting Manisha from Nepal. I have also written a book about all the complications and how difficult it was. The first five chapters are available on my website as a download, as well as links to videos and lots of pictures. Just hand in there and your dreams will come true. Blesisngs, Lorilyn Roberts
