    Hey all!

    I'm from Rob from Oxfordshire. I had seen this forum a few years back in 2015 when I was searching for others going through the visa hardship with my wife. She's now a few months away from being able to apply for ILR, (Finally)! Feels like it's been a very long & expensive journey.

    As for the upcoming ILR, it seems they've made it far more digitized and difficult. Not something I'm looking forward too *Grumble*

    The wife & applicant that is, is a dangerous Cebuana from Cebu :) We're now expecting our first child together next month, a baby girl. That mixed in with the ILR application, That's all going to make 2019 a very exciting year indeed.

    Nice to meet you all!

    Add to our list of similarities oss :)! Did Janna (Lovely name by the way!) also cry within moments of being seperated with her mother, I'm powerless! :lol:

    They're all like that :)

    I don't remember Janna being any different in that way.

    Although she took after me and was quite quiet most of the time.

    Those are great photos and can't of been taken from a shaky camera phone like mine! :D

    But your daughter has grown to be lovely young lady! :) Now my wife's first reaction after an elongated Gwapa! Was that she hasn't got a flat nose, what's with these people?! :rolleyes:

    My little one needs this quiet attribute of yours; instead she's decided to inherit her Bisaya attitude and make herself very aware o_O
