Congrats! A beautiful beginning to you story.
When you argue with an idiot, from a bystanders point of view, it may be hard to discern which is the idiot. (dis·cern: Verb - Perceive or recognize)
Immigration is indeed a very long process, and marriage means next to nothing when it comes to immigration. It was a little over 2 years before I got my "permanent" in Australia, and we weren't successful on our first attempt to get Rowan into Canada.
Time for an update... we received the permanent residency papers and in August I will be going to Oregon so I can bring my wife home forever.
We will be able to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary together in Portland and our 6th anniversary as a couple here in the fall...
Welcome To Canada, Donna!! Now the fun starts, learning what twonies and loonies are, how to shop without using pennies, what mukluks, parkas and balaclavas are and why you need them, why owning Stanfield trapdoor union suit is important, learning a new language and most of all adapting to living in the Best Country in the world.
Dream. Dare. Do.
Just read this whole thread. Quite the amazing journey. Congrats you two!
Congratulations you guys! And Sixty, next time I see you in Bellingham I expect the whole family!
Woke up this morning to hear my wife and daughters talking and conspiring upstairs... my youngest daughter was so excited about Donna finally being here she barely slept last night and she is still bouncing off the walls.
Our house is now a complete home... the girls have us outnumbered by a factor of 6 to 3 if we count the critters.
