Since David will be going to school full time again, he will have to get a new student visa. He can submit the change of status without having to leave the country, but in my case I have to request a new visa at a Consulate. That being said I have to leave the country. I will be applying for a new visa from my home country, but I have to wait till David's new visa gets approved and finalized. They told us that his visa change of status can take anywhere from 1 to 3 months. We thought all this time that we could do the change all together from here, but that was not the case.
I just bought a one way ticket to paradise. Its a bitter sweet moment, from one side I am soooo excited to go visit the place I love, the place that I have been away from for 6 years now, the place that will forever be home to me. I am excited to see my family, and I am excited for them to see our Diego who keeps growing more and more everyday and they are missing out on it. And then I think of being apart from my husband, who knows how long, and my heart gets sad. I am glad he will be busy with school because I think it will be harder on him.
Our little family will soon be separated but with faith we hope to be reunited soon. I know this is one of those things we have to do even if they are hard. We are confident that Heavenly Father is watching out for us, and will help us along this process. All this packing and cleaning hasn't let my mind think too much the fact that I will be leaving in just a few days.
I guess next time I write I be will enjoying the warm weather, and the tropical breeze of beautiful DR, but will have left half of my heart in Utah anxiously waiting for our return. But for now I will pack my bags and enjoy the ride.
