Political Unrest

So our stable and peaceful country in Africa has now been in the news…. a lot...over the weekend.  It doesn't sound good.  If you haven't heard you can read this article Lesotho in Limbo.

 One of the orphanages that I am "friends" with on Facebook has been giving updates on the political unrest as well and it has all of us waiting parents very worried.  Anyone in the adoption world knows that when a Prime Minister flees to South Africa because of a coup that this could also mean the entire adoption program at best could be put on hold, or at worst be stopped altogether.
I am really trying hard to hope that South Africa can intervene and help solve this crisis as soon as possible.  I can't imagine how scary it would be to be a police officer in Maseru right now.  People are literally breaking into their homes and stealing their uniforms and weapons.

All of this has also happened just after we received word from our agency that the matching meeting (long overdue) was going to be held on Friday the 29th.  Well, it appears the coup started that night…. so I'm not sure if the government workers even met that day.

Hopefully I will have an update soon.  I had felt so positive on Friday but now I'm not feeling so good.
