March 13 Update

Our family is doing well and gradually getting more and more settled. The appointment schedule is calming down finally. 

Our big news is that Gulnar Carlisle and her group have decided to sponsor Said's brother and his family! They are Ahmad and Asmaa and their three children, who are 11, 10 and 7 years old. The oldest has some mental disability and has recently had a ruptured appendix, which will take a long time to recover from. We are told that Ahmad has a ruptured blood vessel in his eye which has made it impossible for him to work, so their 10 year old has had to work! Obviously, we hope to bring them as soon as possible. Asmaa is a teacher and speaks English- Yeah! Ahmad is a builder, like Said. 

A huge thanks to Gulnar for taking on this project. She has recently been joined by a wonderful couple, Elyse and Fares who will be part of her team. 

Thanks to everyone for your continued support. 

Update on Ali- we know that his travel visa has been issued, but he does not yet have a travel date. We should be hearing about his arrival date any day.
