driss and i met online in february of 2006. before long, we were talking every single day. somewhere along the line, we fell in love! we talked about being together but it just seemed so difficult. but love conquers all and i flew there in september 2006. i was so nervous and scared the whole trip but when our eyes met for the first time face to face in the airport, i knew it had all been worth it. less than two weeks, that's all the time we had together and it was not nearly enough. his family was wonderful to me, even though we couldn't understand each other save for driss' interperitations, they welcomed me and i felt accepted. i immediatly loved them like my own family. we were in the market shopping one day and we went to a jewelry shop. driss pointed and the rings and said pick what you like. he held it in his pocket all day and by the end of the day, i was a bundle of nerves. that night, when we were alone, my handsome prince got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. neither one of us has ever been married so it's a big step for us but i didn't even have to think about saying yes. my heart screamed it! leaving him at the airport was one of the hardest things i've ever done. i threw myself into filling out the application as soon as i got home, the sooner the better. it's been a journey, that's for sure. everything is done but the waiting and it's the hardest part. but we'll be together again soon, a family. i love you driss!
