Long Road From Dumaguete to America

Early morning at South Seas Resort, Dumaguete(Above: Perhaps not our most photogenic moment, but what do you expect at 7am? ;) This was taken as the sun was rising over a still sleepy Dumaguete)

I would like to append this primarily "touristy" blog with details from a journey which Marilyn and I recently commenced. It is a journey that is sure to test the depths of our patience, and one that will forever alter our lives...assuming, of course, that our intended destination is indeed reached.

Okay, enough with the ceremonious prelude. Marilyn and I will soon petition the U.S. government for a fiancee visa. It is an idea we have seriously discussed many times before, but the circumstances have always prevented us from acting on it. The process is currently in its most infantile stages, but moving forward with much vigor.

I would request your prayers on our behalf as we lay this decision squarely in God's capable hands. Salamat!

Things have improved greatly since the days when I filed a fiance visa. They are process a lot faster now averaging only six months instead of the year it took me.

I HIGHLY recommend buying a fiance visa packet with all the forms and descriptions of how to fill them out and what you need to include. The one we bought also has all the forms and information for after you are married, filing for her green card and even through citizenship. We are about a year and a half out from filing for citizenship.

Also, if you have any questions, don't hesitate to send me an email at recycled.thoughts(at)gmail(dot)com. I've helped several people through it and it is always nice to have another voice of reason.

Wish you luck in your journey. Congratulations.
