Two years - two steps to go

His bags are almost packed.

He washed her sheets and blankets and made her bed.

He patched a hole in her wall.  The hole I've asked him to patch for months.

He put an extra leaf in the table.

He handed me a pair of sunglasses to pack.  He said she'll need them.

He is ready.

There are two steps to go.

Her visa appointment hasn't been scheduled yet.  I'm waiting for an email with the date.  After the appointment her visa will be issued.  The final step is an exit letter from IBESR.

Yesterday I got really excited.  For the first time.  Excited at how real this is becoming.  We have waited for her for over two years.

It's time to come home.
