It's official! My hubby is now, starting today,
a permanent resident of Canada!

It's not really sunk in yet. We had an immigration interview this morning about his daughter being on his application. Her mom will not cooperate and have her examined, so she had to be removed from his application in order to finalize it. I should say, he doesn't have custody, and our intent was not to have her come live with us, but should there be any change in her family arrangement and my husband were to get custody, then if she weren't on the application, we wouldn't have ever been able to bring her here. As it is, the possibility has been left open for a later time, if she ever decides she'd like to come and stay.

But while at the interview, the immigration officer informed us that his medical results were about to expire. But that she could grant him permanent resident status today if we paid the fee. Everything's finished! 2 years and 3 months after our wedding, and we can finally begin to live without having this hanging over our heads!

I'm ecstatic!!!
