              That is heartbreaking....where in Ontario do you live? Have you thought about writing into the paper as well? That will get a bigger fuss made about it and I bet it is something the paper would want to cover. Just a thought. Definitely go to the MP and let the tears flow!

                Hi all! I thought that I'd write and give you a quick update on what has happened in the last week.

                I went into the MP's office on Wednesday to plead my Dad's case about why he NEED's to have this stupid card ASAP. I went in there with a clear head promising myself I wouldn't have a meltdown...you know, you get more with honey than vinegar?? Well, I ended up bawling anyway. The MP assured me that he would look into it and get things done!

                Well, we had our legal day on Thursday. My Dad was in attendance and he was able to walk me into the council hall and gave me away to my FI (or I guess "technically" my hubby now?). It was nice that my parents were there but it still wasn't the same for me.

                My Dad just called me from his work to let me know that he got a phone call from Immigration in Montreal and that they were in the process of getting this landed immigrant status card done and sent to him via courier! Yay! They also faxed him a confirmation that he has applied for this card and that it will be sent to him so that that he can go to the Dutch consulate, show them this confirmation fax and get a start on his passport being processed so that he will get it in time...it's a tight crunch BUT it looks as though he will be getting ALL the documents he needs to leave with us on the 23rd!

                I am trying very hard to remain optimistic but I won't believe it until I see it! KWIM? But, I am so happy that the ball is rolling and it looks like it is in our favor! Looks like I will be voting for my MP again in the future...I will have to send him a thank you card I think!

                Thank you all for the kind words! It was a bad time for me and you made me feel much better knowing that there were my BDW girls in my corner. I'm positive all the good vibes and prayer helped a lot!!! You girls ROCK!
                First Kiss as a Mr & Mrs!!!

                      Sounds like things are starting to go your way. FX that everything goes through in time.
