After 16 months apart, Max & I have finally been reunited. Submitting our documents back in September, 9 months felt like an eternity. Having to provide further proof of our relationship (c’mon!) in March set us back a bit but finally Lady Luck was on our side and our application was approved in April. Delivered to the US embassy in May, submitted more forms, paid more money and scheduled my medical in June and then FINALLY had my interview at the US embassy in July (after paying a little more money for the privilege!).
As I was discussing it with a friend, (just after the royal birth) I couldn’t help but draw the parallels with pregnancy. You wait for ages for anything to happen, then suddenly everything’s moving so fast and before you know it you have a baby!
The thing you’ve been waiting for suddenly arrived and you’re totally clueless. By taking each day as it comes, you gradually find your feet and start a new adventure.
Thank you all for your encouragement and support along the way - through the highs and the lows - I couldn’t have done it alone.
Babbling Brooklyn is back and better than ever!
