A year ago today

16 Mar

…I was in Vancouver, BC – sad, afraid, anxious and uncertain about the future. I was just denied a visa to join my husband in the US and I felt so lost.

I don’t really know how to explain it, even today, I’m still a mass of nerves when I think about it. Don’t get me wrong, I was very happy with my husband but the fear of things not working out, of being adrift, of being separated was making me stir crazy. One thing I can say is that immigration limbo is like being in purgatory: you don’t really know whether you’re going to heaven or to hell.

    Heaven is inside you, and no immigration can take it away from you.
