Are there any couples with kids here that live apart because of the visa process?
Please share your experience. How long have you been apart? How do you cope?

My fiance is overseas waiting for the PMV grant (Applied March 2018) and I am in Australia with our almost 9 month old baby doing everything on my own with no help from relatives which is very hard as you can imagine. She hasn't met her father yet due to the long process of the visa which makes us worried about the important father-child bonding in these delicate first years. We pray everyday that we will reunite soon and start living as a normal family. I try to stay strong and positive but due to upcoming Christmas I get very emotional these days. We really want to celebrate this Christmas together!

Please share your experience

I was one of the kids who spent over a year without my dad when I was young (around 6-7 years old) and it didn't negatively affect our relationship.I think paternal bonding at as an infant is a little overstated, people don't even remember living at that age.
