Waiting & Waiting - Not So Patiently

Tomorrow is the BIG day. My dear friend Vivian & her daughter Kerri have their interview with the Canadian Dept of Immigration.

What are they looking for in the end? Why their official notice that they are now legal residents of Canada! Once they have their residency in place, Viv & Kerri will be able to work, go to school & most important of all they'll be able to travel outside of Canada. We're waiting (very impatiently mind you) for a visit! Viv & I try to talk on the phone at least once a week. Thankfully our hubbies not only understand this but also encourage it. Kerri & Erin are in dire need of a face-to-face visit. These girls just absolutely love each other. It's a great bond.

And now I wait for a phone call that better be good news!
Yay! Canada has decided to give Vivian & Kerri their residency. And now they have to wait to receive their actual cards. Without the cards, Vivian & Kerri can't get back into Canada should they leave. Tomorrow she'll be contacting Canadian Immigration to ask for a rush so they can come visit her parents. Hopefully, Canadian Immigration works faster than the US Immigration!

sending all of our good thoughts and prayers for a successful day at immigration tomorrow.

I know how much you guys miss Viv. We all do.

Awwwww!!!! You know I would have called but you beat me to it. And thank goodness we did not come home right away, or you would have had me crying. I had been in a funk all day.
We cannot wait to see you too. And Corey suggested that if we have to wait, to ask the school if Kerri can miss a few weeks and come visit in September instead, once our cards arrive. I am still hoping for a miracle so we can come down this month (and Kerri does not have to miss school).
Oh, and I love that picture of Kerri and Erin watching "Curious George". My picture, not so much!
