We are praying for some answers this week. We need an answer as to where our children (Sophie, Dominick and Alyssa) are going to school. They start school Wednesday and we had petitioned the school district to allow them to go to the one elementary that is ADA accessible. This is the one where Angeline has to go to school. We desperately want our children all together during this transition from home school to public school. We have tried for most of the summer to get someone to commit to making a decision and we are working with the district assistant Superintendent to get some things accomplished. He is a busy man and I am a relentless nagging mother. Tomorrow if I don't have an answer we are having a sit in at the district office.
I am not kidding. I will wait there and wait with books to read until we have an answer. And YES we are bringing ALL the children with us to sit there. This is insanity not having a plan for my children and for my sanity!
Next order of business is dear Isaac. I am about to wage a sit in to get my son home too. I have had enough. The latest is that they attorneys office needs a new POA. This isn't to get out of MOI- this is for the consulate.
Each time we have had to do a new POA (this is number three or four of power of attorneys we have done) we have to write it up, hubby has to get off work, then we get it notarized, sent to the state for legalization, then translation, then the Haitian consulate, then back to us, then we fed ex it to Haiti. Its a process. Its a pain. Why can't the people who are on one of the POA's that they already have handle getting things done the rest of the way?
I know that if it means we can bring our son home then that will be worth it... OF COURSE. But I just feel edgy and touchy about the whole thing. I just want some good news and not news of another stinking paper that someone has to get done and signed in dragon blood and sealed in wax from the titanic. I mean seriously- why is this process so hard? Its just crap. Its crap for the orphanage, its crap for the adoptive families, for the attorney and their employee's, and its especially crap for the kids! WTH?
My family spent the entire day today with the continued PURGE of "stuff" and organizing of the house. I just have to get everything in order that I can control because there are so many HUGE things going on right now that I can't control. And that's hard for me. I have a hard time letting go and praying and turning it all over. I know that I have issues...
Pray also for Bear's parents. His Mom has still been sick and is not able to get down to RHFH. Literally there are parts of the walk/hike down from their village that require her to be able to be on her hands and knees scaling rocks. She is ill and having leg pains. Pray also for Lori who has to deal with getting them down there. Pray that she finds the right answers... because this has to be so frustrating for her. And we need them to come soon. Its imperative.
