Well.... unfortunately Jorge wasn't granted a tourist visa. We had done hours and hours of prep work for this interview... performing mock interviews, going over tons of questions and the responses to them, getting all the paperwork together etc.... When he got there they asked him if 1. He was married, 2. If he was in school, and 3. If he worked. After answering those questions they asked if he was married to an American. He said yes, after that his visa was denied and that was the end of the interview. haha... All our hard work!! hahaha...
So, I guess we'll be doing it the long way... the way everyone else has to do it. But dang, I didn't want to have to wait 10-18 months to do the paperwork and processes. But that is a consequence of marrying a foreigner. What's one year compared to eternity, right?
At least I'll be able to visit him a couple times this year. Once this summer, and again in December.
THANKS to all the friends who were thinking about us!! I'm glad I have you in my life.

On wednesday, Jorge is going to the American consulate in Recife, Brazil for his tourist visa interview! If he passes (which in reality the odds are quite slim to grant a spouse of an American citizen a tourist visa...) But, IF he passes then Jorge will be here in July!! YAY!! I'm trying not to be too excited about it because I know its almost impossible for him to pass. But, we decided we wanted to try our luck doing it this way. So with a A LOT of prayer, fasting and faith, we'll see if he gets a kind-hearted immigration officer as his interviewer. :)WISH US LUCK!
