So my (beneficary) fiance and I arrived at our new home two days ago. The anxiety and fear of the interview is over. The wait for approval and papers is postponed until the next steps after the wedding. I go back to work, and now she... Is thousands of miles away from everything familiar to her. Her family, friends, and everything she's ever known. Everything here is foreign to her. She's excited for the future, but also sad for what she's left behind. Who out there knows the mixture of emotions, hope and fear, happiness and sadness? Who in the world could she share these feelings with that could relate or understand? How weird is it that there is no one to pump your gas or check your oil? Where are the car guards? Why aren't there bars on the windows? I'm being extra and dramatic, I know. But there are so many great people I've chatted with here. I think it would be great to start a What'sApp group for those who have come to the states on a K1 visa from South Africa. If the only shared experience is coming to the states from South Africa on a K1 visa, then that's a pretty big thing that is the basis for support, ideas, recipes, shopping, tips, recommendations, or just witty banter that only South Africans can understand. In fact, I don't need to be part of it. I just think it could be good for my fiance and good for others who have went through this life altering process. Anyone?
