Sunday - Update

In response to comment re. my last posting: The riots on Thursday and Friday last week had nothing to do with the priest's death, though I heard on the radio here that there were demonstrations in Miami regarding his death. On the radio, people were calling in regarding the priest's death and they were angry against President Preval.

If his funeral is at 11:00 a.m. today at Notre Dame Cathedral downtown, I am going to make sure to avoid that area. There are going to be clogged streets and probably thousand mourners and that can turn ugly, especiall if there is anger.

The rioting last week had to do with angry students. The headline of the "Le Nouvelliste" newspaper reads: Etudiants our casseurs? (Students or Demonstrators?)

According to the article, students of two universities were demonstrating (L'Ecole Normale Superieure & Doit et d'Ethonolgie). The second school is a law school...LOL...they will be some good lawyers! (Just joking)...

We're at the point in our adoption where they're calling for the birth mother for the I 604 investigation, but she's nowhere to be found. We missed the first interview because of this and have contacted the Embassy multiple times for advice with no response. Do you have any advice for us? Is it possible to move on without finding the birth mother? Any tips on getting through to the Embassy?
