No More Goodbyes, Please - Part 2

For those who read my previous post about my boyfriend's immigration crisis, here's an update.

We met with an immigration attorney last week and figured out all of the possible options that are open to us. The bottom line is that Tobi has about six to nine months to find another job in his field. If he is unable to do that, then he will have to leave the U.S. As of today Tobi has not yet been laid off from his current job. We're crossing our fingers that this will drag out so that he has extra time to look for a new position. The job market is unbelievably tight right now.

So we're glad that the time frame can be stretched out. I want to say thank you to all of you who have expressed your good wishes.

This crisis has been very stressful for us. We are threatened in a way that no opposite-sex couple would ever have to worry about in the U.S. I have to say it makes the Prop. 8 insanity seem very personal.
