This week-end has been challenging.  I think everyone figured that now with the new CA members all figured out, getting registered prior to 2/12 wouldn’t be too challenging.  Unfortunately, Friday started out to be a big mess.  Lawyers waited all day and very few registrations actually occured.  It was really a mess.

Basically, the new information is that we need to have a new registration number prior to 2/12 in order to be grandfathered in.  However, nobody realized that they would highly scrutinize the forms and ask for all sorts of details and then review everything in detail to make sure it was correct.  Frankly, I have no issue with that – I only have issue because they need to have almost 3000 completed by Tuesday and it’s slow going.  If there is a mistake, then you get a kick-out (previo) and have to correct the information (meaning starting the whole process of lining up and waiting all day).  I believe that some of the information is not filled out because the lawyers don’t have it as the files are in PGN but in some cases, the lawyers don’t want to share the information (which I don’t know what to make of).

Fortunately the new members of the CA seem to be willing to work long hours.  I’ve been sick to stomach with worry though.  If we don’t get a registration number by Tuesday – well, we have no idea what will happen.  It would take new legislation by the Guat gov’t to extend the 2/12 date and that’s not easily done.  If children do not get a registration number, then the new CA has authority to place the children wherever they want and well, I don’t even want to go there.

So, my nerves have pretty much been making me sick all week-end.  Some agencies have been in communication with their clients over the week-end but not ours.  I believe they are monitoring stuff but it would be sure good to hear from them.

I so hope our lawyer has his shit together and registers us.  For the first time this week-end, I’ve had to confront the idea that Elmer might not be ours due to stupid paperwork reasons.
