Hey everyone, I have good news to share!
First off, my husband had an interview that went, REALLY, really great! The boss actually contacted him instead of vice versa, and is very sympathetic to our situation. My husband fulfills all the skill sets they're looking for-- in fact, it's such a varied/specialized job, they had given up on being able to find a single person that could do it and were getting ready to look for two-- then he found my husband. That's what he said! It would be a fantastic job for him, AND it can offer the 1 year contract we need for me to go home to stay! The man even said if my husband was a good fit, he didn't see why he couldn't have a job there for the next 5-10 years. Kinda huge on first impression, if you ask me! They really hit it off, and we're hoping for the best! My husband has a translation test to do (English to Dutch and v.v., which is like asking me to take a Zelda quiz). If that goes well, the job is his! We're very, very excited and hoping and praying for the best! This good news is something to be hugely thankful for. I smiled and cried a little when I heard. My hopes are so high, home feels so close!
And it doesn't end there! One of my amazing friends outside of dA surprised me the other morning by sending me the money to get the new computer I need as a gift!
I'm so excited! It's AMAZING and I feel so blessed someone would do that for me. Words can't even describe... And my "foster family"? They continue to be amazing as ever! They bring me so many laughs and so much encouragement. I truly feel blessed.
So it's been GOOD NEWS today! Thank you all for your continued support and prayers. Please continue to pray, we're so close--! Everyday I make it a point to reflect on the good things around me and be thankful and treasure them. I write them all in a journal now, just so I won't lose sight. I want to treasure all of this. I cannot wait, my heart positively soars at the thought of going home to stay, of overcoming this trial and being welcomed home... That feeling. It brings tears to my eyes, it's so beautiful. I want nothing more.
