We went to PGN yesterday to check on our MP reports that we were waiting on. Just like several other families, that is all we were supposed to be waiting on. The reports are back with no problems except for one typo that is getting fixed. We met with Sonia but she didn’t have much to tell us. She asked if we would like to meet with her boss. We said yes since this is the person who is supposed to sign off on the cases so we could go back to “normal” PGN. We waited about 10 minutes and then went in. There were 2 other girls sitting at a table in the office. This woman’s last name is Solares. She said she was hired along with the 2 other girls to review files. She said that they are very busy and can hardly get through 1 case a day. Though when looking through our file you would have thought she had no clue what she was doing. She said that PGN needed to find our daughter’s BM. Hello, there have been several investigations done looking for her. They have put our daughter’s picture in the newspaper and everything else under the son. We reminded her that the BM did come to the DNA appointment, family court interview, and all the other requirements. She just couldn’t be located for the 2nd interview that PGN was requiring. She asked us off the wall questions and said that she was not signing off on cases because if she did and one of them was fraudulent then she would go to jail. What the heck was she hired for? She was persistent on needing to locate the BM again. It’s like they are beating a dead horse. We reminded her that we were sent to a judge by PGN and the judge ruled for the adoption to proceed due to no abnormalities in the case. I think she finally realized that the BM may never be found again and that things need to be moving forward. I thought that was what the MP reports were for.
I then whipped out my picture book and showed her the photos of us with our daughter over the past 2 years. They all smiled and looked at them talking about how much she resembled my husband. We finally cracked a smile from her. I wanted her to see that there are children behind these files and they are missing out on time with us. She said she knows that they are violating the children’s rights but her hands are tied. Our translator who also helps families with adoptions told her that PGN has had 2+ years to do all the investigating and reinvestigating on these files. Solares said that she is meeting with the judges and CNA on March 12th to figure out how to finish these cases and that we could check on how the meeting went. So, not the news we wanted to hear. They keep stalling all the cases and making up new requirements because no one wants to take responsibility.
All we want to do is puke right now. I really don't know when this is going to end.
