I just came to the rude realization that I most likely did not get a residency because I was forthright about being a single mom. I know they couldn’t ask, so I went ahead and brought it up. I felt it was important, but I guess it was (most likely) a deciding factor in eliminating me. I can’t say that I am upset, as it allowed me the time to stay in Albuquerque and develop my relationship with Nick. I never thought I would meet someone who loves me the way he does.
That just goes to show you that out of every death comes a birth. Because my initial residency didn’t happen, our relationship was given the time to blossom. I feel it’s strong enough to withstand a residency away, and of course Hawaii’s a nice place to visit.
