So happy!!
« on: May 13, 2012, 12:01:34 am »
My brother, who is my only sibling, has finally seen the light and made the decision to leave SA   :yippee:  Now for the big decision - Oz or NZ, but even if it's Oz, it's still only a hop across the Tasman. They have 165 points for NZ and 80 for Oz so qualify in both instances. And then we'll get my mom across as soon as it's possible and we'll all be together again, cousins and all  :yippee:  The new parent category rules are in our favour on this one as far as sponsoring my mom  O0

So now it shouldn't take as long to sponsor a parent if you fall into the tier one category is my understanding  :)
