July 15

Back in May I started thinking about July 15th. I can’t explain why, it just hit me that today would be a big deal. At first I was hopefully that July 15th would be the day that we would be picking up Kwasi in Ghana. At some point in June and gave up on that thought. When we picked up our packet this week I thought, MAYBE they will respond on Friday with an appointment (realizing that this was completely unrealistic since the last time I emailed it took them a week and a half to respond). We had figured the date would be in September. If we were really lucky, maybe the last week of August.

Then this morning, July 15th came. I picked up my phone like I do every morning and checked my email.

There it was – an email from the US embassy!

We have an interview date. Not only do we have a date, we have a date in August – in the middle of August! August 16th!!!

I can’t believe we are finally to this point. What this means: Our POA will go to the interview on the 16th. If everything is in order, and some times -it’s not, we should be flying over to get him about 2 weeks later when his visa is ready.
