Yesterday was an exciting day here at our house! While I had stared at my phone and checked email a thousand times an hour, nothing happened on Monday or Tuesday. Wednesday was our first day back to school from Christmas break (no students). We had a faculty meeting first thing. I took my phone with me and told my friends the thing just must not work. :) Right after our meeting, I went to the office to check on something and was told I had a phone call from some Children's family or something. I immediately knew who that would be and went running for the phone from the back of the office. I got nervous and excited all at the same time. What if our SW was calling to tell us we didn't make the cut. Well, luckily, she said, "I was just calling to let you know that you are in the 1st batch." I was THRILLED!!!! I totally forgot to ask anything logical. Her estimate to travel was at most 10 weeks. I am hoping it is MUCH sooner, but to finally see an end to this wait is an amazing feeling!!!! So, here we are....one step closer!
Please keep praying that we get through this process quickly and they submit her a Visa a.s.a.p.! The earliest people have seen travel happen from this point is a month, however, we were told it could be a bit longer due to the size of the 'batch' that was submitted. I would LOVE to get her home at the end of this month, but in all truth, it will likely be February at the earliest. Come on travel call!!!
