Parents of Russian Orphans in 'Holding Pattern' After Adoption Ban

Americans who were in the process of adopting Russian orphans are waiting to see if their adoptions will be allowed after the Russian government last week banned all adoptions from the United States.

"We are in a holding pattern," Teri Froman told The Christian Post Friday.

Froman and her husband, Ryan, had already begun the process of adopting their second child from Russia when they heard the news of the adoption ban. They received news from the State Department on Thursday that there would be no new information until after Jan. 9 due to Russian holidays.

The Fromans brought home their first adopted child, Maxim (2), from Russia on Christmas Eve 2011. They were hoping to adopt his sister from the same country and began the process in July 2012.
