Hi plan until a couple of weeks ago was to return to Canada in August and continue his studies toward a PhD in Canada. In that case his wife to be and child would be needing help coming to Canada. That has changed and his goal now is to remain in California for at least a year working (taking some classes as well). Wedding hoped for July 28, 2018. Baby due March 23...next week
