Medical appointment set!!!!

Today just before lunch I received an e-mail from our social worker saying that she had gotten an e-mail back from ICAB saying that Rafael's medical appointment has been scheduled for January 13th!!!!!! This is just the news I wanted to hear before Christmas!!! Hopefully he will pass his medical with flying colours and then his visa can be completed and we'll be almost finished our wait. I'm hoping that it will only be 4-6 weeks after Rafael's medical that we will get the call to travel. I don't know if anyone else can give me their timeline between the medical appointment and call to travel. This is such an exciting time. The final countdown is on!!!!!

Merry Christmas indeed!!!!!!!!!!!! Ours was probably different since we're USA (I-600) and we were traveling so close to Christmastime (home 2 years today!), but we traveled 5 days after his medical appointment took place. I hope yours is closer to the 4 week (or quicker) mark!!

Totally happy for you guys! Congratulations on having the medical scheduled. What a Christmas gift. I very much enjoyed seeing all of the nice little things you sent in the care package. This gives us some ideas when our turn comes 8) Wishing you all kinds of blessings in the new year. Dianne, New Brunswick

That is fantastic news! I just checked our timeline and Levi's medicals were done and passed on July 26th and our agency gave us the okay to book our tickets on the 30th and since we went a few days early to experience as much of the Philippines as we could we left on the 5th and had Levi in our arms a few days later. So I am hoping that your experience goes as smoothly as ours and that you will be traveling near the end of January. What a wondeful thought...:) We are so excited for you guys. And I hope that when the time comes that you are planning on packing your laptop so we can all follow your experience. Merry Christmas!

Jenny, out of all the timelines I have heard, yours definitely sounds the best!!! I think that here most families wait 4-6 weeks at least to travel but I guess miracles do happen. I praying for one!!
We will be taking our laptop and hopefully we'll get the chance to be posting some photos. I can remember looking at your photos when you guys travelled to Levi last year. I loved following you guys!!
