So, now I have lots more copies to make, documents to download, and paperwork to organize. We have a whole bunch of papers that have to go to India with us and be filed there. It's very nerve-racking to me for some reason. Anyway, we are down to our last little waiting game, I hope.
- We are waiting on our ICPC approval from our state which hopefully will come by the end of next week.
- We are waiting on our visas to get here, which should arrive by the middle of next week.
- We are waiting on Micah's passport approval. We have been given a tentative bit of hope that this could come sometime between the end of next week and Feb. 14th.
Once we have confirmation of these 3 documents, we can purchase our plane tickets! It's difficult having to do that at the last minute and not knowing when you are going to be traveling. I am a stay-at-home mom, so I could pack up and go tomorrow. However, with my husband being a school teacher and a worship leader at our church, it has been a little difficult for him to draw up lesson plans and plan music for services when he doesn't know when he'll be gone. Also, with 3 other children at home, we have only been able to make general plans for where they will be staying, how they will get to school, and who will take them to their ball games. :)
Even with all the uncertainty, we are going to shoot for flying out on Valentines Day...a very romantic and memorable way to spend the day! If the passport approval doesn't come through by then, we will just take it week by week and plan to leave the first Saturday after we receive it. So...we wait...
