The Ball’s Rolling

I think I see a light at the end of this Never Ending Story!

“Dear parent of Zamir,

Thank you for applying to Qatar Academy Doha!

It is a pleasure to inform you that your child Zamir has been offered a space in Grade 11 الصف الحادي عشر for the academic year 2016-2017.”

This news takes a large load off of my shoulders.  Both of my boys will be attending the same school.   This makes me very happy.  Doha offers an IB curriculum and the facility is beautiful.  The boys will be in a position to look out for one another and I feel secure with having them together.  Can you see my smile?

Today I went to court for my custody modification order.  My ex-husband has been very cooperative with this whole process.  The judge was like, “You all were my nicest couple today, nothing like all my other cases.” My ex and I were both like, “You should have seen us 10 years ago!”  We don’t get along but we don’t fight or argue either. We’re not together anymore so there is no need.  We don’t have to like each other; respect is all that is needed.  My expectations for him as a father were and still are very high but he is who he is.  I am grateful that he agreed with no qualms today.

Next steps: Take the new order to Harrisburg.  Get a stamp.  Send it off to ProEx documentation authentication.  Send them 36.00 more dollars.  Get the modification order translated in Arabic. Not sure of the cost of that yet.  I’m guessing $90. Wait for FBI clearances and get them authenticated.

I've lived my whole life in Philadelphia. Daughter of a teacher, I later became one myself. When I heard about teaching overseas, I jumped feet first. Finally told yes, my two boys and I prepared for our new life abroad. Join us on our journey in Qatar!
