My husband and I are from California and have accepted primary teaching jobs in Ipswich and will start in September. We’re just waiting on my ancestry visa!!!

I’m American born, but qualified for Canadian citizenship because my dad was born there. He actually spent his whole childhood in England before coming to the United States and was only a baby when he left Canada for the UK. If only he had actually been born in England!

It’s been our dream to move to England and we’ve been preparing the last five years. It took a long time for me to get my Canadian citizenship and passport. We’re also bringing our two cats and flying into France first so they can be in the cabin with us. This is such a scary and complicated process but it’ll be so worth it.
