Thank you for your comments on my last post! I really appreciate your sympathy!
My dad is feeling better now. We just can't grasp why nothing has happened so far... The family next door is still there. No punishment, no penalty, but new questions. My dad told me, the neighbors' asylum was denied (years ago) but they are still in Germany. I don't believe it's due to the children because I remember a boy from my elementary school who had to go back to Kenia after his family's asylum was denied or maybe the reason vanished - I really don't quite recall that fact but he was only eleven and he was really a nice guy without any trouble. Has politics changed that much since then? Anyway, something's odd about that family.
