I have emailed my IF today for the first time.  He is so wonderful!  His English is pretty good, thankfully!  Finally getting the "go ahead" to speak with my IPs since the contracts are signed is great.  This makes me even more excited than before.  I look forward to getting to know them and them getting to know me and my family.  I'm so happy right now!

Well, got some not-so-good news yesterday.  My coordinator called to inform me that D&S would like to wait until after the holidays to begin the process...............   << crickets chirping >>....I know!  I didn't even know what to say.  What could I say?  I mean, it's their baby so I have no choice but to wait.  It's just so hard to wait.  I can't believe they are willing to wait that much more.  I understand traveling from Italy would probably be cheaper and less hectic after the holidays.  So, we are looking at a February transfer date.  Now that really seems like a long time.
