We knew we were waiting for a correction on the death certificate of the kid’s father. His Ghanaian name was used instead of his Christian name. I understand why they need this corrected. All the other documents have his Christian name on them, how would they know this is the same man that is discussed in the Social Welfare Report? Either we need to prove he is actually dead, or he needs to consent to the adoption. Since he is dead, it needs to be corrected. That was over two weeks ago that we got that news. No death certificate. Not anyone’s fault, just disappointing.
Today I found out that the embassy needs that corrected death certificate to even look at one piece of our paper. So, for all I know, there could be 8 more of these type of errors that they just haven’t had the time to discover yet. How long will this go on? No one will tell me. Disappointing.
There are people that bribe and steal their documents. Their children might well be home before mine. While I make sure that all my i’s are dotted and t’s are crossed, other people push and bully their children’s birthparents and government officials into getting their way. Disappointing at best.
who feels a little sick today when she wonders if any of this is worth it.
