I have just received the official notice that my application for permanent has been accepted!
It started at the beginning of February and is now closing. All I have to do is wait for the physical card to arrive and I will be able to take that and get my healthcare reinstated.
This entire process has been up and down, and sideways all at once. Navigating the immigration offices, tax authorities, and health care offices has been a roller coaster that is repeated every 5 years when a visa need to be renewed. But, thank the Lord that I will not have to do that but one time!
I want to thank those of my supporters who offered up prayers during this process as these have been helpful to keep my sanity and a calm heart. I look forward to providing another update soon!
