He will be at the airport in Melbourne beginning his long journey back to me. Its been a long time coming, months of loneliness and waiting and frustration, but during these months we also endured these hardships together and grew stronger! Now I can't wait for the end of this long process and the beginning of our lives together :) Thanks to everyone here at Visajourney for all the help, a shout out to all my fellow Oct 2011 Filers and a hope that their own journeys are swift, and also a big thanks to my fellow Australian filers (represent lol). I love you guys! (L):luv:
