April 15, 2008 1:30 p.m. (9:30 p.m. Nigeria time)

Dear Diary:

The day is over in Nigeria and still no word of any substance. They are still being held; there is still on "ongoing investigation"; they have "not been arrested or charged"; they are still being denied legal counsel or visits from consulate personnel--nothing changes. The only thing offered are vague assurances that this will be resolved "soon." Well, what does "soon" mean? Today? Tomorrow? This month? This year? In relative terms, soon is just not soon enough for me.

I'm tired of not knowing. It is the not knowing that is killing me. All I know is that my baby is on the other side of the world being held against his will in some detention center for no reason. It is time for this to be over. It is soon...
