The Road To Migration

My posts have slowed down to a trickle because I have been very busy with work and preparing my papers for filing. I have recently applied for immigration to Canada through a consultancy firm. I grabbed the chance to apply because their current occupation shortage includes Registered Nurses. I have long wanted to apply in Canada because I believe that it is better for my family as compared to the States. So when I learned about the new processing times, hubby and I made a big decision to apply.

The fees are not really that cheap, but so far the consultancy is guiding me throughout the entire process. I really did not expect that there will be a lot of documents to prepare so I am very thankful that their efficient staff is just an email away. (They don't have an office here yet) I have not been too optimistic with consultancy firms or agencies because I was too afraid of spending a big amount of money on the filing and stuff. But at this point in my life, I need to take big risks so that I can also provide a brighter future for my daughter.

I found this consultancy that has been operating for more than two decades, and as compared to the many others that I have tried inquiring, they got my trust. So I finally signed up! My parternship with the company is sealed, and currently I am still gathering paperworks for our application. I am praying that God will bless our plans because I feel that my family is ready. I hope that this is finally our time to migrate =)
