My Fiance Fadi and I met in the summer of 2005 in Baghdad, Iraq. I was in the US Military and he was working as a local translator. We worked and lived together in various areas of Iraq for several months and quickly fell in love. When he asked me to marry him I immidiately said yes - even knowing the consequences. I was discharged from the military (not honorably) and we began the arduous Visa process. I returned to the Middle East in the summer of 2006 and Fadi and I lived together in Amman, Jordan for three months awaiting his Visa interview. When I discovered I was pregnant, we both decided it would be best for me to return to the US to await Fadi's Visa approval and subsequent arrival. He had his interview on October 12, 2006 and was approved. Unfortunately he did not receive the actual Visa until April and finally made it here to the U.S. April 28, 2007.
