Question for People who got their I-130 approved

How did you find out about your approval? Was it online? or Was it via snail mail? I have had bad experience with VSC online records (i.e. them being not up-to-date, etc), so I was wondering if I should rely on the online status of the case.

Just a general query...I think it might be beneficial to other anxious NOA2-watchers :whistle:

YOU CANT CHANGE THE PAST BUT YOU CAN RUIN THE PRESENT BY WORRYING OVER THE FUTURE

TRIP.... OVER LOVE, AND YOU CAN GET UP

FALL.... IN LOVE, AND YOU FALL FOREVER

I DO HAVE THE RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT, JUST NOT THE ABILITY

LIKE THE MEASLES, LOVE IS MOST DANGEROUS WHEN IT COMES LATER IN LIFE

LIFE IS NOT THE WAY ITS SUPPOSED TO BE, ITS THE WAY IT IS

I MAY NOT BE WHERE I WANT TO BE BUT IM SURE NOT WHERE I WAS

We were approved in Dec 13th 2007, and I found out over the uscis.gov web site cause I am unable to chek my "yahoo" emails from work. Later on when I got home I found email from CRIS telling the same: Case approved. Approved 13th and approval apeared on the web site on 14th.

Good luck!

Intimacy, like charity, begins at home. If we cannot be intimate with ourselves, we have no way to bring to intimacy with another person.

Intimacy with ourselves takes time. We need time for rest, time for walks, time for quiet, and time to tune into to ourselves. We cannot completely fill up our lives with activities and become intimate with ourselves. Nor can we just sit quietly indefinitely and become intimate with ourselves. We have to have the time and energy to be our lives and to do our live in order to establish and intimate relationship with ourselves.

Surprisingly, as we become intimate with ourselves, we discover our connection with others

Intimacy....In/to/me/see...
