    Congrats! A beautiful beginning to you story.

    We celebrated our anniversary this past August with my daughters in Portland... it was absolutely wonderful to be together as a family and I have been back to Portland in September, December / January, and will be going back again in April to spend time with my beautiful wife.

    The girls keep asking when Donna will be here... they love her so much.
    All the best!! Hopefully this next phase goes quickly.

    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...

    Our next step is attempting to get citizenship for me here in Australia ... I should be able to start that process soon.

    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.

    It is filling up with boxes.

    I may start to have unreasonable reactions when anyone mentions books or crafts...

    You will learn to keep those thoughts to yourself. Trust me on this.

    Congrats. It's great to be a complete couple after such a long wait. And it must have felt good handing over the paperwork at the border and not having to worry about any complications.
    Dream. Dare. Do.

    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.
