I am grateful I finally get to tell you that I AM LEGAL!!! I just got word from my attorney’s office that my long awaited residency visa was stamped into my passport TODAY!!! So just over one year after I arrived in Ecuador (and 5 days after my final extension visa expired) I can finally, officially be allowed to stay PERMANENTLY – which is nice since I just moved into my new home! 🙂
This has been an unbelievably long ordeal (11 months – there’s that number 11 again!) and I am so thankful to God that it is over – I’m doing a major happy dance today!
