i've been here in united states since November 4,2014,moving and living here is not easy,I felt homesick most of the time during my first two months here,since i'm working almost 18 years and all of a sudden i have to stay in the house all the day and every day,but thanks to my husband for all his effort,support and patience when i'm in bad moods because of boredom,But i always remember that before i came here we already talked about life in US,specially here in Michigan,with th help of our Lord through my husband,he planned everything we got married as soon asi came here,he filed my AOS right after our wedding,while we are waiting for the ead/ap he sent me to CNA class,3 days after i finished my CNA,i received my ead,im so happy,because everything went smoothly,5 days after i received my ead i applied as CNA,and today i just finished all the paper work i need for the company,and on march 24, i will start to work again,now i can finally say that everything is really went well for me,i am beginning to get used to the life here,i am starting to build my dream and career here in US,I thank to the Lord for giving such an angel to support me ( my Husband )..i am turning 6 weeks pregnant now and next month we will move to our new House..i am sharing my experience because i know a lot of vj friends are going to what i've been through before,just focus,support one another and plan ecverything very well..always understand your beneficiary,because moving here and being homebody for a while is not easy..but thanks to all the supportive husbands/wives here in vj,i wish all the best for all of US..always stay positive vj friends!you also inspired me...GoD Bless Us All ❤️

its refreshing to read such a nice story. you say it very well.

marriage is a commitment and is hard work. it is nice that you both walked into this journey together supporting each other. you say somethings that are very critical in a relationship: working together to plan and supporting one another along the way. immigrating isn't easy nor is leaving family behind.

good luck to you in your new home and new family, and may you both continue to be blessed abundantly.

thank you for sharing (L)
