Think you could lend a hand for love?
I mean…I must be a bit desperate for sending some random person on the internet a heartfelt message asking for money but…well yeah I am.
Here’s the thing, I met my husband three years ago online. He was smart, funny, handsome, and oh! that accent. See, David (my mans) is Australian. So skip forward a couple of years and I packed two big suitcases and moved to Perth, Western Australia to live with this hunk.
Things were great! But….as I’m sure you know, Visas have expiration dates. So come February 2018, we started realizing I’d have to leave soon. Then….he popped the question. And duh, I said yes.
I’m not trying to bore you with this backstory I promise but it’s important!
So, May 8, 2018, we got married without a dime to our name. It was a simple, romantic, and perfect day. Then…May 10 (yep, two days later) I flew back to the States and we started working on his green card application.
It’s January 2019 now. I haven’t seen, hugged, or kissed my husband in 8 months. I miss him more than typed out words could ever say. We originally thought his application should be approved by May, but turns out even just part one won’t be complete until our anniversary.
Look, I’m broke as hell. I work 40+ hours a week and deliver Postmates on the weekends and I’m still just making ends meet. I want to see my husband for our anniversary, May 8th. And I really want to surprise him with my arrival by February 19th (his birthday).
Again, this is slightly embarrassing but I’m running out of options and at this point, I’m willing to do what it takes to just hold him for a little while again. I really do miss him so much and the distance isn’t helping our marriage.
The ticket is $950. I realize that’s WAY too much to ask of you. Anything would be incredible (plus tax returns are soon so I’m hoping for the best there). Please…please let this reach you. And I hope you understand how incredibly important this inquiry is.
Thank you for reading my super long and romantic sob story!
