… I stayed on purpose.
I saw that phrase this morning and thought it fitted our situation very well.
I referred to my husband’s dark days as an asylum seeker yesterday. I’ve not given much detail about either visa denial to date. There are reasons for that. I was hoping Australia would finally “do the right thing” and we could simply get on with our lives. I had faith in my country to uphold the ICCPR. I didn’t want to publicly show how badly Australia had handled both situations. As that has yet to happen, I’m going to delve into the dark days while we wait.
