Olga and I met online in September 2008. Our first meeting in Moscow was in April 2009. The weather was a bit chilly; but our relations were warm. :) In June 2009, I spent a week in Moscow with Olga and her son. We discussed marriage during this visit.
In January, I filed the I-129F with the Vermont service center. Due to the winter snow storms, Vermont is a little backed up. We were expecting NOA2 results sometime around April 9th, but it seems that April 24 - May 10 is more realistic.
All paperwork and documentation for the K1 & K2 visas are ready to go! So, now we patiently wait...
