Sorry to hear that. Now you have to face them and ask to review their decision based on your facts. Hope every things will be fine. It might be worth fighting for it?

I have re-read mel and Abdul's posts so many times and each time I sit here and cry my eyes out. What happened to them is almost lay exactly the same thing that happened to us 2 years ago. It was devastating and soul destroying so I of all the people here can really relate to a purely racist and irrational decision by diac based on absolute and outright lies by the case officer. Been on anti depressants ever since. But we fight on. Almost 7 months into our 2nd attempt at pmv and still waiting on hearing date at mrt. 15k ppoorer on lawyer fees visa fees mrt feesand add on another 5 k for my month in Ghana last Christmas. Sometimes I think I must be mad to continue. But then I see his face on Skype and hear his voice on the phone and I no it's worth every cent and every minute of our 4 year fight to be together. As a plus size woman I can relate to the other posters too with one exception my once skinny starving Ghanaian is now nice and round with a big tummy lol and I love him even more for it. Never give up never surrender we will fight forever for the right to be together .

And some joyful news am buying my next airfare to Ghana for July 19 for 3 blissful weeks together, cannot wait

Hi All,

I thought that it was time that i write and let you know what is happening with me and Abdul. Well the visa refusal really put shocks through us both, it was not at all what we expected. I did consult with Mark and also looked at it in details myself and it looks like they treated us very poorly. From what we can tell, the decision to refuse was made back in Nov but they waited until I started to stir things up looking for an update to give us an answer now in March.
The other thing is that they treated us with prejudice and discrimination in my opinion. One for Abdul's colour and race and the other for my mental health issues. A whole lot of good supportive information was minimised or discarded and statements in the refusal document showed that they had made their mind up and were only looking for information to support that position rather than taking an holistic look at our case on merit.
Anyway it is a machine and the dye was cast and there was nothing more to do in that instance but to look at the other future options. I know what I am going to say now will be difficult for many of you to understand and flys in the face of what we have all seemed to be fighting for all of this time...but I made a decision that it was the end of the road for me and that no other options were acceptable for me so that was the end of our process and the end of the line for Abdul and I.
My reasons for doing so are personal but very much driven by my mental health and the stress and duress that this process has put me under thus far and the huge impact it has had on my well being.
I have seen my health decline significantly over the 6 months of waiting for this visa decision and I know that it has had a major impact on my quality of life and all relationships in my life.
It was an easy decision on one level as it is like asking a member of the public to perform a routine on the parallel bars that gymnasts is just not possible or within their ability to do this....but on the other hand I was walking away from something very, very important to me.
So there you have it. The beginning and the end all in the power of the hands of the german based case office in Berlin. The nail in the coffin of our relationship sealed with the tap of the keys on her keyboard and we are done.
I'm sorry I couldn't be stronger...for me, for him, for you all...but this is what it is and life doesn't always turn out how we planned...but I have faith in God and that he uses all things for his Glory and that this was not a waste on any level as one day I will call on these experiences for my benefit.
Thank you all for sharing of yourself, your lives, your loves and your hopes and dreams. I wish you all well and pray that your outcome in no way resembles mine.
Bless you all.
I'm in tears of sadness and pain as I have read this. I don't know what to say because you have made a decision yourself although some of us would not know why but do understand what you have gone through. It scares that this happened to you because it's evident in my relationship now it has been 8 months of waiting that we are losing hope and fighting like there's no tomorrow.
