So much has happened in the last few months.
Our petition was approved by the Department of Homeland Security. It was sent to the US Consulate here in NZ in record time.
They sent a list of further paperwork which I am very nearly completed. Just waiting on a police certificate. Hopefully not too much longer to wait on that. The medical assessment in Wellington was a bit of an adventure. But it’s done.
We’re so close now to getting the visa in our hands and booking our flights.
Jessi will have to leave at the end of December no matter what, and of course the ultimate goal is to go with her. But, if I can’t get the visa before then, I will go at the end of January, after she completes her clinic placement in San Diego. Either way, I’m going.
I’m once again equal parts excited and terrified. I’m over the moon to be able to go with my Egg to her home, and meet her family and friends, and see the sights of her country like I could show her the sights of mine.
Wedding planning is about to kick in to high gear. Never thought I’d be saying that! Weddings make people crazy. Luckily, most of the people at mine are already nuts so no worries there.
I’m gonna practice my Kiwisms to impress the Yankees. “Yeah nah” “Chur” “Tu meke bro” “Sweet as” “Choice” I can’t wait to see the faces of the people trying to understand me haha
More to come as it develops. It’s late I should sleep.
