One year married, but one year apart. Khalid and I spent hours and hours talking yesterday on the phone to celebrate our anniversary. We talked about our wedding day and tried to remember every detail -- I was surprised at the little things he still recalled that I hadn't. We talked about our dreams and how much we hope to be together soon. It was nice...very nice. Sometimes in our daily talkings of how are you, what are you doing, etc, we forget how it is to talk about life and issues. I loved my hours talking to Khalid.
We got some good news on our process which was wonderful for a few days before we got some really bad news. The good news is that we might be closer to him getting Austrian papers....and EU citizens can travel to the United States without needing a visa.
The bad news that the immigration people that we have been dealing with and having troubles with spoke with Homeland Security whom Khalid and I had a joint interview with and passed. Homeland Security is now pulling their approval based on stupid facts and false information -- they are stating that I married Khalid just to get him to the United States and that he became a Christian also for this same purpose. It is awful and it was a slap in the face to even read it. After everything we have been through and trying so hard -- they resort to saying that we don't really love each other and degrade Khalid's faith. It is an all-time low....even for the United States Government. I am not sure what I need to do next except write a rebuttal letter, but what we need the most is PRAYER!
PLEASE PRAY FOR A MIRACLE!
PRAY FOR SOMEONE COMPASSIONATE TO RECEIVE MY LETTER!
PRAY THAT GOD SHOWS HIMSELF IN THIS PROCESS BY ALLOWING KHALID AND I TO BE TOGETHER FINALLY!
