Taylor & Aaron <3

Hi! I've been a member here since 2014 I think but have never really taken advantage of the site until recently.

 

My name is Taylor, I live in Maryland. My husband's name is Aaron. He is from Belfast, Northern Ireland, and we currently have an I-130 pending to bring him here to live with me! We've been together for six years and have been married for three. This journey has been insane and definitely not like anything I ever imagined for my life, but every single step of the way has been wonderful and worth it - even the sad and difficult parts.

 

Thanks everyone!


02/2011 - Met online, ages 16 & 19.

04/2011 - Declared our love for each other.

06/2012 - He visits me in America for the first time.

12/2012 - I spend Christmas with him in Northern Ireland.

07/2013 - Try to visit him in Northern Ireland again, but denied entry.

07/2013 - He makes emergency trip to America and PROPOSES!!!

04/30/14 - We say "I do"!

~He makes several more visits to America over next couple of years while we establish careers and save money~

01/28/17 - I-130 mailed

01/30/17 - I-130 Received

02/03/17 - NOA1

Currently - Waiting patiently. <3
