Oh Happy Days!

Farhan just arrived in Tangier from Doha!!  We haven’t seen each other since June 27 and it felt like forever!  Ayoub took right to him and they had fun playing all afternoon.

Today marks the passing of a major milestone.  I had a difficult time in June thinking about the remaining days I have here in Morocco.  I decided to just take each days as it comes and enjoy the time I have with Ayoub.  I remember saying at the end of June that I just need to get through July, and today is August 4, thank goodness!  Time is passing quickly and it’s only a matter of time before we can head home.   We still don’t know exactly when that will be, but our target is to be in Doha by October 5 at the latest, just in time for Sarah’s (Farhan’s sister) wedding.

I look forward to sleeping late while Farhan’s here and a quick trip to Spain to renew my Moroccan visa.

Oh happy days ahead!

  3. Hello Raana,

    I love reading your little blogs. What a great story to tell Ayoub when he is a bit older. Its such a great adventure that the three of you are on.

    Did you get a chance to talk to Ms Haddad? Will you kindly send me her email address again?

    You are in my prayers.

    • Thanks so much for your support and excitement for us even though we haven’t actually spoken in quite some time! I appreciate it. I really look forward to you meeting Ayoub, too! We hope to be back in the US around Thanksgiving. How appropriate 🙂

  7. Hello. My husband and I are also interested in adopting in Morocco but we’re still not sure all of the documents we need for Moroccan courts for Kefala. Even though he’s Moroccan, I would be interested in a list of documents needed there if you could contact me. Thanks. I’m siobanny@gmail.com
