    June 23, 2014 marks our first year of a very happy marriage. We have been so blessed from the beginning,alhamdulillah,and I wanted to update our story to share and show it can be done. My husband has adjusted to life in the US and has been working very hard, has good job and plans to finish his education. A special thanks to all the people from VJ that helped us along the way, and a very special thanks to the dear friends I have come to know. Inshallah may all your journeys be blessed.
