However, on November 10, we received a major disappointment as when we got word that his I-601 hardship waiver which we had worked so hard to compile was not immediately accepted. With this being said, rather than receiving a much longed-for Visa, we received a letter stating additional evidence should be submitted and his appeal would be reviewed in approximately 10 months.
My husband is currently staying with his parent’s and working on his dad’s Coffee farm as there is no availability for employment and minimum wage in the local area is five dollars a day. He is staying busy working but barely making enough money to even survive. In the meantime, I am attempting to stay strong and keep my sanity as I am giving full-time care to my Grandmother (who has Alzeheimer’s), give full-time care to my two young children, and remain a full-time student!
I fear for the future our children if we have to relocate our dreams. We are just barely beginning to build a family and as a new mother and father we are trying our hardest to build a strong foundation for our children. Jose is such a wonderful husband, provider and father. My husband and I would just like to have the chance to live the American dream of having children and owning a home of our own someday.
