This time next week Lyndsay and I will be in Vancouver for the final steps in the K-1 visa process. She has a physical exam, we pick up the medical report, and then it’s time for the big shuffle of paperwork and the visa interview.
Me? I’m actually just there for support. They don’t allow me into the interview, and there’s no real appeals process. We have one shot at this: they talk briefly with Lyndsay, give us the thumbs-up or thumbs-down right then and there and that’s it.
So, in ten days we will know whether our fiancee visa is approved. I’m confident that we have a very solid application, but it’s still nerve-wracking.
One thing that has helped tremendously has been your support. It has really made a difference for us, both financially, and for peace of mind. And it’s actually been fun. (We’re going to be listening to A LOT of Rush during that road trip.)
We had an aggressive goal, but with your generosity, we made it and so now it’s time to wind down. On Tuesday we’ll be shutting down the gofundme campaign. If, in the meantime, you’d still like to contribute, we’ll use that money for little extras like a tune-up for Lyndsay’s car, or AAA road service — and there’s still time to get in on the Accordion/Banjo/Ultra-Rush challenge if you want to tweak our playlist even further.
This next step is a big one. Thank you for your encouragement and support. STAY TUNED!
