My New Friends

So things finally came to a head with Eduardo and I last night. We got in a big fight, but the tension got released finally and things are back to normal today. Big sigh of relief! I woke up feeling good and even Liliana is being super cute and happy today. The weather has cooled down a lot with the rain. I hear that in a couple weeks it will start raining and not stop for a long time. Should be interesting.

I made 2 new friends today!! American gals that live in ES too. I have been online friends with them for a while. We are all part of an online immigration support group. They are down here going through the same process as we are. It's super cool there are others to relate to. Eduardo had to go into San Salvador, the big city, and do some paperwork so he dropped Liliana and I off on the way and we met up with these 2 gals, Sarah and Kristen. We all hung out for a little bit and it was really great to get to speak English and share stories and complain together. It was great therapy and just what I needed! Sarah lives about 45 minutes away and Kristen is more like 2 hours, but we plan on getting together a lot more now that we have met. Yay!!

Eduardo got a used washing machine while they were in San Salvador for $150 and that's exciting. We don't have to make Ana, MIL, wash all our laundry by hand anymore and I can use MY natural detergent. Good day all in all.

I love your blog!

Can you tell me more about your immigration support group?

I'm in El Salvador and have been going through this nightmare process for 2 years. It would be really nice to have someone to talk to about it. Even just to have someone who can relate.

I've been searching the internet forever for immigration information and support groups, but it's such a long search. So many websites and blogs. Yikes!

Thanks for any help you have.

Hi Andrea!! I just saw this comment. Check out It's THE BEST for all kinds of immigration info and support. I am on FB as well. You can look up Kelsey Tepas and you will find me. Let me know what part of the country you live and maybe we can get together. My good friend Sarah lives in Santa Tecla and we are in Izalco, Sonsonate. I'm so glad you found me!! 2 years is a long time down here.
