Adoptions are moving along….
We are very excited! We had 5 passports go into printing and they should be picked up today. We have 4 dossiers in MOI (Immigration) presently and 2 more going in on Monday! That means we will have 11 children going home in the next few months!
IBESR had not signed any adoption approvals all month until yesterday. I spoke to another orphanage director and she said IBESR gave her several signed dossiers. Our lawyer is going today to see what they have done for our dossiers. Hopefully, we will have some more good news before the end of the day.
We also heard that some crèches received their 2013 authorization forms. We are checking on ours today too. I am praying that they have studied our documents and that our approval is sitting there waiting for the lawyer to pick them up! NOTICE, IBESR just called and said our license has been issued and we need to pick it up! Hurray! I am so happy!
I cannot tell you how happy I am that adoptions are moving along so quickly right now. If we could just get the President’s office to sign dispensations (pardons) for those families not meeting the criteria of the 1974 law, I would be ecstatic! I just wonder if the president’s office is waiting for the new adoption law to pass and then they won’t have to sign the dispensations. I did hear from another agency this week, that they thought the new law had passed the Senate. If this is true, then we are really close to having a new Haitian adoption law! Please pray that the law gets passed and in place very soon.
