It’s time to celebrate!
We received the best news today, Ger has received his visa! I cannot tell you the total relief, consuming excitement and pure joy that we are feeling. He has been gone 420 days to be exact. That’s a long time for a couple let alone a newly married one.
This process has been grueling. We’ve dealt with thousands of dollars in visa fees, incompetent lawyers (which ultimately delayed the process by at least 5+ months) and not to mention the time apart. I don’t wish this process on my worst enemy.
Tomorrow afternoon I will see my husband walk through those airport doors to freedom. I cannot tell you how proud I am of him after everything he has been through and how proud I am of us to survive such an experience. We’ve grown so much closer in this past year and we’ve learned a lot. It reminds me that in every situation there is opportunity to grow and always something to be thankful for.
