Those who walk along do not walk alone

I think one of the most wonderful discoveries on this journey has been the realization that so many others are on the same pathway. It is an overwhelming source of support that I never dreamed of finding.
So many people (who post encouraging messages on your blog or whom you read about or talk to everyday on blogs) have made this journey not only special but bearable.
It helps knowing at any time of the day or night I can find support by those who have been there or are going through the same things we are. It is so refreshing to help those behind us or to see their enthusiasm as they begin in the same place we started mere months ago. It is something I never expected going into this journey.
God bless all of us on this pathway to our futures.

Out of translation

We found out today we are out of the translation room. We only found out last month we were in translation, so to be out is pretty cool.

CCAA actually has dossiers through June out of translation, so it looks like that much of the process has speeded up. Wonder if the new regulations that took effect May 1 have had any impact on that (i.e., fewer dossiers to translate)? Of course, this move now puts us near the end of a long line pending review (July 2006 currently is in review). Then, it's the long line pending referral.

But, the good news is it's one more step in the process behind us. Gotta love that!
