Almost living the "American Dream"

A lot of people around the world would love to immigrate to the Unite States of America. Millions of people have tried. Millions of people have been rejected.

Mr. RB and I have been preparing our final K-1 Visa package to be sent to the USCIS... I am terrified to my core. I pray & pray daily that everything will run smoothly, but I still worry. I have this gnawing feeling in the pit of my stomach. I think I'm giving myself ulcers...

I'm just. SO. SCARED.

I don't want to get my hopes up for our wedding & then something happens to delay finally getting to be with my FI. We've been with each other for close to 4 years. I can't do this distance thing for much longer. Haha yes I can... thats an empty threat. What am I gonna do? Call it off because I can't handle the distance? Not likely.

Sigh. I just feel so alone in this sometimes.


  1. Sorry you have to go through this. My family immigrated from Ukraine so I've been through the process of visas, green cards, and finally US citizenship. The ridiculous cost of everything and the bureaucracy can get overwhelming. I really hope they process the application quickly and everything works out!

  2. Aww thanks for your support!!

    It is completely overwhelming. Like you said, it's not just the initial visa... it's AOS, interviews, green card, citizenship... it's a 5 year process! Sigh.

  3. Your so not alone!!! I am not done with the process but I can totally relate to this post and the felling on it, always feed your positive thinking!! I really hope you have news soon

  4. Thank you Joy!!

    You're right! I need to send out happy thoughts & vibes! I need to lose the stress... its out of my hands now :)

    I wrote this right before it was sent off to our lawyer...
