I went on a mission trip in June of 2007 and I came back with a few "friends" I had met. After 5 months of communicating with one man I had met, I returned with my parents and daughter to see what it would be like to be with him in a non-mission oriented setting. We quickly realized how strong our feeling for each other really were and decided to get married. We were married in December and began gathering the paperwork to file for him to come here. Unfortunately, we had no idea it would be so long and complicated. So, here we are, the plane tickets are getting expensive and the phone bills are adding up but I couldn't be happier!
