CELEBRATE LEAWOOD, KANSAS INTERNATIONAL INTERNETS LOVE STORY!!!
Wedding season is upon us and this local news item caught our eye not only because it proves that LOVE really can overcome all obstacles but also that the U.S. immigration system has a sweet spot as well.
Also, middle-class white ladies with good intentions are probably the saving grace of this nation and the world.
Fox4: Summer of Love -- Leawood woman falls in love on Facebook with man in Gambia
"One Leawood woman met her husband four years ago through the social media site. They biggest problem they faced -- he lives in Gambia. The couple started an online friendship that led to a relationship over time. She was in Gambia two days, and then in a leap of faith they got married . . . The couple had a wedding with four dresses, two cakes and 300 guests. They got married at the justice of the peace and also at a local mosque. The whole community came out to celebrate their union.
For the past year the couple has been working through the U.S. immigration system, and on Thursday they got good news: that THE GROOM is coming to America. He passed his immigration interview and was given a visa to come to the United States.
She can't wait to have her husband in real life with her for the rest of their lives.
Congrats . . .
Also, those like TKC who find this love story charming probably shouldn't read the comments . . . Mostly penned by haters whom nobody likes.
You decide . . .
