but also not completely unexpected. We were informed by our agency on Friday that the Central Authority is temporarily shutdown. They are not accepting any new registrations and they are not issuing any registration certificates at this time. There are several things going on. My friend Jennifer did an excellent job explaining everything on her blog so click on this link for more information: http://www.lifewithfishers.com/2008/02/whats-going-on-in-guatemala.html.
Basically, we are caught in a political mess and who knows when this will all be straightened out. It's so discouraging and it is so difficult not to be overwhelmed with all of these uncertainties, especially since things seem to change by the hour! The future of our family is in the hands of both Guatemalan and US politicians, many of whom are more concerned with power and control than what is in the best interest of children. Of course, there are many people fighting for our children, but the fight is plagued with so many political games. All of us stuck in this mess are hoping for some answers soon. I think I can comfortably speak for all of us in process that we are ready to get off this roller coaster ride!!
