    I have been living in The Gambia for 12 years (I'm British)and have been bringing up a Gambian child as my daughter since she was two, she is now 11. I really want to go back home to live, and applied for a settlement visa for her. It was such a stressful few weeks waiting to hear, and i didn't go off plan, which is unheard of for me under stress!!!We have just heard, guess ,we got it!!! horray so in July i shall be back living ,legally,
    in the UK with my daughter. We are so happy about it. Will be able to shop for SW goodies at normal prices then!!!!!
    I cant wait to feel the cold and hopefully see snow again.
    Sooooo excited , now i have the huge job of selling everything we own before July.
    Just wanted to share my exciting news with all you lovely people.

    Fern it will be a big change but she has been to the UK about 8 times and the USA and some of Europe, so a well traveled young lady and very confident. She has not experienced racism and that is a worry for me. lets hope it wont happen, but i have prepared her for it, if that is possible??
