Anyway after the disappointment, came the okay, what do I do now? Despite all the lists and preparations I felt completely lost. So I cleaned out purses and make up
Next came the sadness...I started thinking about how I would not be part of my family's daily life anymore. How much I would miss all of my friends, etc etc. But after talking to Sidnei, I got over that pretty quickly..
Now I'm just EXCITED/nervous/scared!!!
Also, another option we had, was the Motion to Reconsider. We have gone back and forth with whether or not we would ask the Judge to reconsider giving Sidnei bond. Sidnei said he would wait if the lawyer thought we had chance. Luckily I just checked my email and she said she is pushing to expedite his deportation and that we would not enter in the motion.
Good thing I bought my ticket tonight!
May 26th, I will be leaving to fly to Belo Horizonte!! (Of course I won't be there until May 27th) I bought my ticket for a little later in May in case we waited out the thirty days and even though we aren't, I'm still a little glad. There is SOOOOOO much to do!!
We will live in Ipatinga, Minas Gerais. With his parents. Which I am hoping won't be for too terribly long. I am hoping he will have some time to get things straight, find a job, and we can start the apartment search....because I am sure I will LOVE my in-laws....but I think you all see where I am going with this...
As far as Sidnei goes: right now he is still in jail. They are working on expediting his deportation process. So I am hoping in the next week or so he gets to fly home. We should know more details this week.
Sidnei's visa application is still in. He still has a chance to come back to this country. His application has been approved (by USCIS) which is a very good sign and now it goes to the National Visa Center. Not that I have any idea what this means, but when I have a chance I will be sure to ask the lawyer. But we won't know any definite answers for another year and a half.
Any other questions?
Again I am SO SO excited for our new adventure! I am SO SO SO excited that I will see my husband again on May 27th!!!!!!! WOO HOO!!!!
