more formal update
An assistant in the Africa program from our agency called and let me know that they did have some information about our case. A few weeks ago our case was submitted for court- however the court then requested a birth certificate. Well S was abandoned, so none exist. At this point i am under the impression (the phone call was very fuzzy, nearly breaking up- damn cell phone) that the agency staff in ET have requested that the Ministry of Womens Affairs issue a quasi birth certificate for S, so that the court would accept it and proceed. The assistant with my agency said this has never been requested for an abandoned child being placed by them before....so that kinda has me worried. I am guessing that once the certificate is issued, we will be submitted for court again......two steps back- but at least we have some kind of a clue as to what is going on.
