I met with our parish priest and turned in all of the required annulment documentation on Friday. He is forwarding it to the tribunal this coming week. I wrote a 9-page essay on my childhood/courtship/marriage. That alone was quite an event. He told me that there are no promises entering the tribunal but he believes that I have a really good case based on the history of our diocese. Now starts the waiting period. It could take up to a year for a decision.
Please pray for me to be patient and accepting of whatever outcome the tribunal declares.
