The short answer to your question is no, grief is never completely gone. I knew we both took each other as we were. There were times within the trip where she had to leave my side to do the volunteer work at school to work with disable children.
We have been together for 8 months and the last time we met was before Christmas. Coming home and back to reality and talking to my friends about it, the reality of that happening seems hard, but I really want to make it work. Hi Mark, congrats on meeting someone : The process of her coming to live with you will greatly depend on the options for UK immigration, so I would start by looking into the different types of Visas she might be able to apply for to spend time with you in Scotland.
