I think VSC happened to find a lost July11 petition and they captured that in the monthly reporting...which makes everything appear off or delayed. I wouldn't worry too much about that... It will update again soon. Check the timeline stats. VJ people are being approved from December...


I hope so because I filed in September, My fiance and I are expecting our first child in Sept. I am worried he wont be here on time.

Ahhhhhh, the ok feeling is back again. Saw many theads last week with nay sayers and a lot of negatives; I guess they're not saying anything now because they're eating crow. In one month and two days now and everyday I'm positive and hopeful tomorrow will be our day.
Good luck and best wishes to all. I hoppe and pray that tomorrow it's your day too!!!

thanks guys for all your answers!... i dont know why its comforting to hear people's opinions.. i guess people in our situation just grab onto anything we can for comfort!
I hope this topic helps anyone else who has been wondering the same thing.
Im going to agree with the answer about the July petition!... that makes me happy lol.

Yes it helps to know there are others like ourselves, anguishing over how long its going take; I haven't even started yet! OMG!...yep, its gonna take time, but its good to ready and get help...So keep passing the help on to the next ones that will come after us!

Just Believe, and have Faith.......and follow all instructions!
