Default About time we said 'hello'

Thought it about time I introduced ourselves we are 'mudplug' hubby, me and our 4 kids 15, 13, 10 & 4 oh and our pooches who will be coming over with us a GSD called Wylie and a terrier called Sage.

We are in the final stages of the visa process got c/o and 5 weeks later still waiting, according to others time lines and the London branch website we will have approx 7ish weeks till we know if its smiles or tears.

This past year has been a very hard one, never thought when we started on this road it would be this hard, at first its all excitement but that soon changes into the constant waiting, you cant make any dicissions long term because you just dont know where you will be. I think this had been particually hard on the kids, they have had to put up with so much ups and downs.

But would like to take this opportunity to say thankyou to everyone who has helped us so far, answering our questions and offering support, looking forward to the meeting ups......

Hello & welcome to you, your family both two legged and four legged

I think I know what you mean about the initial excitement, I was over the moon at first, now I'm just worried most of the time and I know exactly what you mean about not being able to make long term decisions!

I think kids can be quite resilient, as a child we moved around a lot and though it was hard saying goodbye to friends, I think I turned out ok it may be harder on teenagers but hopefully everything will be ok best of luck to you in your plans and hope it all goes very smoothly for you.
