We just got our visa interview appointment date: March 19th.
If everything goes smoothly (which we expect), Horyon will be approved right there at the appointment. They will mail her passport with visa to us two or three days later. At that point, we will be able to buy plane tickets to fly to the U.S.A.
So it's looking like sometime late in March, which is kind of good news. Mom and Dad will be going on a cruise in March, and won't get home until around the 25th, so at least they will be able to come pick us up and see Maxine again right off the plane. I'm sure Maxine will be thrilled to see them.
This means that I will not be able to give anyone a more exact date until around March 22nd. Please be patient with us!
