Joe bid his children a fond farewell while also expressing excitement over the next time he'll get to see them in a touching post on Instagram on Monday (December 30). Joe started out the post, which featured a photo of him and his daughters visiting the Colosseum in Rome, by sharing a couple of quotes attributed to Henry Ford: “Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right... Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.”
He then went on to say that even though it may be challenging to get accustomed to some things while living in Italy, it'll be worth it because "I get to see these faces again!!"
Joe ended the post by saying to his daughters, "Till next time!!"
It looks like the Giudice girls' visit has got Joe feeling all kinds of nostalgia. The Real Housewives of New Jersey dad has also been sharing several throwback photos of himself and his family on Instagram, including one from Milania's communion in which he reminisced about his life before all of his legal troubles as he faces the possibility of deportation. "I will always adore the memories I made in America and how much fun we had as a family! I will always love my family and care about them, even if [they're] not here because of choices so tonight I share with you all of me!" Joe shared in the post. "We had wonderful times in America as a family that I will always cherish forever!"
Joe has been in Italy awaiting a final decision in his ongoing deportation case since he was released from ICE custody in October. Teresa Giudice offered an update on the case in The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 10 After Show, which you can view, above. "The fight's still not over. We're still going through the third circuit. But I told the girls it's gonna be like a year, year-and-a-half before we hear anything," she said. "Don't think negative; just always think positive. And you have one life to live, and live it the right way."
Teresa accompanied her children to Italy for their first visit to see the RHONJ patriarch since he was released from ICE custody in November. We'll see their emotional reunion later on this season of RHONJ. New episodes air Wednesdays at 8/7c, or catch up anytime through the Bravo app.
Watch a preview of what's to come later on this season of RHONJ, below.
