Finally some news...
We went to Guatemala last week to show our faces again at PGN. I was getting all kinds of stories when I would call that didn't make much sense, so I went in person. THe director was not in either day I went. Well, the second day she was but she snuck out the back door and we didn't meet with her. There has been some confusion when I call because there are 2 other children that have names extremely similar to Kinsey's birthname. So this is what is really going on with our case. It is on the director's desk. She asked the investigator to get his report done. We met with him and he promised me on Wednesday he would have it done. Thursday morning he was half way done with it and had talked to his boss. He told us that she said to hurry and get it done so she could "proceed". We are hoping that means approve. We did learn that they had released 36 cases our of Minor's and back to normal PGN 2 weeks ago. Most of those were sent back to Minor's, due to more reports requested by the reviewers. Payes in Minor's knows that this back and forth with the cases is not getting anywhere so hopefully they will all realize they are being ridiculous. I can't imagine what other report they could request for any of our cases. We all have every single report known to man in our files. So, we are waiting to hear what she does with our file. I know they are feeling pressure from the government. There were some other things we needed to do while in Guat. and got those things done too. It was a productive trip. We met up with another in-process family and also delivered a package to another family's child and foster mother. It was awesome to be able to get pics and video for this family. They have not received pics in 6 months and last saw her when she was 4 months old.
Kinsey is great as always. She has the cutest manners. Very polite. Kinsey and Kainen play wonderfully together. He loves his little sister. She continues to touch our hearts and can't wait to have her home. We bought her a bicycle while there and brought her a new baby doll and a Dora backpack along with some other things. Her foster mother was happy when she picked her up and said that we had got Kinsey everything she had been asking for. Kinsey was not sure about her bike at first. It will take some time, but I am sure she is already riding it around at her house.
Hopefully new news to come very very soon.
