We made the decision to move to the U.S. almost a year ago. Since then, we’ve been setting our departure in motion. Patrick gave 13 months notice at work which is now down to mere days. We have spent 11 of those 13 months applying for an Immigrant Visa to the U.S. for Helena, which when combined with around $2000, 6.8 kilos of paper, and a mandatory trip to the U.S.-approved doctor in South Africa (there are two within 2000 kilos of us), has finally been awarded! Also in those 11 months our daughter Emma was born and granted dual citizenship. The only thing holding us back now is some larger pieces of furniture and two cars. Please check out our Moving Sale page for items we’re selling!
