"I adopted Ada from Vietnam in April 2008, just as Vietnam and the U.S. announced that international adoptions between the two countries would soon end. I traveled to Vietnam and adopted Ada without U.S. approval, and without knowing when or if I could return home with my daughter. If she was going to be stuck in Vietnam, I was going to be stuck with her."
