Lots of things.. but, we have NEWS!!!!

Hello to everyone tonight!!!!

We received word on Dec. 22nd that our agency is going to submit our dossier asap to the consulate!!!! I was Christmas shopping when I received the call.. and man of man I about fell over... people in Target had to wonder what was up with the woman in the middle of the kids clothes!!! :-) We are updating all our documents and have sent for new FBI clearances (which will take the longest to get back...) so, hopefully we'll have all the documents redone and ready to send in a couple of weeks.... waiting on those FBI clearances will be the tough thing!! Please pray that they update them quickly and overnight them back to us ASAP!!! This is our 3rd time in 2 years for them to confirm that we have NO criminal record with the FBI.. maybe that will speed the process?!?! well, one can only hope and pray!!!

so, due to this exciting news we are THRILLED!!!! We had a great Christmas... spent lots of good time together... and really celebrated Christ's birth! I have to admit that knowing our dossier was about to be resubmitted added such an awesome element to the holidays!!! We have been really trying to remain positive, and have.. but, hearing the news that it's going to finally start moving again was such a much needed blessing... we've been waiting to have our dossier sent back to the consulate since May... that's 6 months... we submitted our completed dossier to our agency on March 3rd.... so, we've been waiting a while... with no progress... just expiring documents!!!

I hope and pray that everyone also had a blessed and wonderful Christmas!!!
I will try to keep you posted.....
Blessings...

So glad you had good news during the holidays! What a gift that was! FBI was faster when we just had to update. It will happen at the right time so try not to stress about the updating cause you'll be doing it until you travel. It is going to be a Happy New Year in the Gobble household! Praise the Lord!

I'm keeping my finger and toes crossed for you. We are in exactly the same place- Our agency emailed to say our dossier would be sent in Jan/Feb. and to get documents updated. Yeh!
