Oh, happy day! Remember that whole EP backlog I wrote about last year. Well, many families have had a long wait, hoping for the Korean government to begin releasing exit permissions/emigration permits (EPs) so they could bring their children home.
I don't have to tell you how tough this would be. To wait and wait, knowing everything was in place to finally bring your child home, and all that was holding it up was this one piece of paper and it's politics behind the mess.
For some families, the wait is finally over. The first EPs have just been released since last summer! So happy for these families. They hope to travel within 3-4 weeks. It depends on their agency and with so many people receiving the EPs at once, they have to spread out the arrivals.
But at least, things are moving again. Hopefully they will continue progressing smoothly and these kids will be united with their forever families.

Next, hopefully referrals will pick up again too.
