A suburban family who went to China to adopt a little girl was supposed to come home Thursday. Capture

But they can’t leave the country because the U.S. Consulate is closed due to safety concerns.

Jason Foreman says 90 other families are in the same situation.

They’ve been given little information, except that the consulate will be closed for the rest of the week.

Foreman says other families have told them the consulate received an envelope containing a white substance.

Foreman says they may be able to get an appointment with the consulate on Monday so they can return home.

They’re adoptive daughter, Liddy, has been with them for more than a week.

They say she is bonding with her big sister, who was also adopted from China.
