Major health check ups and some dental appointments have been done, meetings with settlement workers have taken place, bank accounts have been opened, most necessary documents have been obtained and a meeting with immigration officials been completed.
It has been a steep learning curve for us, and certainly at times been quite overwhelming for the family. Now it's time to take a break over Christmas and hopefully have more time for fun activities.
We are very honored that the Abdallahs are calling us their (very big!) Canadian family. A highlight for all of us was a big Christmas party with the family on Sunday to which we also invited our incredibly generous donors, without who we would not have been able to settle the family in Canada. Many thanks to everyone, and have a wonderful Christmas!
