This is the story of our move from our little mid-terraced home in the heart of a little village called Breaston in the UK over the great Atlantic to St Louis, Missouri.
My husband, Paul, works for a company whose headquarters are based in the USA. After several trips out there (one where baby and I got to go along too) the decision was made both by the company and ourselves to petition for a work visa so that we could relocate to the USA and Paul could carry on his work there in the headquarters.
We have just had our Visa approved.
What does this mean you say?
Well, following a long wait while our petition went through check after check after check it was finally sent off to be processed in California. A week later we received notice that it had been approved and informed of the next steps we had to take to solidify the decision.
This includes a trip to the US Embassy in London that we will embark on next Wednesday.
Luckily Calleigh does not have to be present at the Embassy due to her young age so we have arranged for her to stay with family.
We have booked a hotel overnight as to avoid a very (very!) early morning drive to London as our appointment is at half past 8.
I am very much looking forward to our trip and will make sure to update you once we get back.
Hopefully the decision will be a good one!
