Thank you to my beautiful friend Kiara who married an American before I did and walked me through my journey step by step. Your advice the day before my interview meant more to me than anything else. Thank you.
Thank you to Jen who called me the morning of my interview and prayed over us. Your thoughtfulness and kindness never ceases to astound me.
Thank you to every single person who ever prayed for us in the last 32 months. This literally would not have happened without all the prayers – we are so grateful to God for this green card!
We are now in Australia and our hearts are full.
