I hope that we will be approved soon.

I read this with such sadness - I feel for you all, and can only hope that soon something happens. This is PLAIN WRONG, but those words won't comfort the people that are still waiting.

Elberth, Joh, My dearest GOGO - what can I say, if it was me, I would have told USCIS to blow off and just moved to the UK at this point and basically become a brit and said SOD IT. But we got lucky and found the way through the blackhole. We are not done yet by any means, but further along then some of our friends.

Sighs and sheds a tear for our governmental agencies really need to get out of Wonderland and wake up and apply the basic of FIFO here - Sorry to others that get approved in a snap of the fingers, but this is pure WRONG.

Kris,

Those are great words luv, however, after reading some other threads about these delays whilst some are done in four months - and lets not even even discuss the I129f stand alones please , something has to be done somewhere for these people. Should we start contacting the newspapers again - Washington Post anything - this is WRONG and we all know it. The words that will comfort anyone at this point that have been waiting over seven months plus are these..................

YOUR I-130 is approved.............................and thats about it hun.

El, Jon, get ahold of your Congress person or Senator or screw it, both, and hammer them day in and day out for help- its election year, they want a vote, they can do their job for it.

Aye mate, and for the life of me I dont understand at all anymore - I know you will enjoy your visit and I hope you come back to a greeting of approval - xxxxxx

I havent seen my other half in 10 months, he cant come here and I have to work to maintain that support level- shame on them. So much for family values eh???

Let me know how things are and saying tons of prayers tonight for the friends we have made here, I am sad.
