Update...I know, I know it is about time :)

Ok, since I last posted a lot has happened.  After calling and calling and calling our officer about our change of country, she finally called us back last week! I think she might of been tired of Jim's several minutes long messages. every day.  She told us that it had been approved and was mailed out a the week of the 13th!!  We were very excited!  I finally cried it was as if huge weight lifted off my back!  We still needed to wait for the official approval but we knew it was coming.  The next day it was in the mail!  SO great to finally see these words!


Our friends, also received their TA last week (they did not have the immigration issue we had) so that means we are going to get Chloe and Maire together!!!  I can not wait!  The next step is getting our consulate appointment.  We are asking for an appointment towards the end of January so that means we will be leaving in about three weeks.

I have been slowly processing it all and I am not sure that it has sunk in completely but in about 3 weeks this family is going to go from 2 to 3! Can not wait to get her home!

I will post about Christmas later but I think our best gift was the approval!
