Mumbai Surprised Us.......

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I am hoping my story will encourage each of you through this anxiety provoking time for all of us...

Although I have not posted at length on VJ, I have been in touch with some of you and praying for the rest going thru this adventure.

With all the stories I have read and heard from some going thru Mumbai, I feared our interview. We all know what a difficult time some people get from the different personalities at the Embassies. My case had what many would consider all the red flags. Huge age difference, I am divorced, children, etc. It was hard keeping faith sometimes that we would be treated fairly.

Despite the quick processing of all the paperwork, at our initial interview in March, my fiance was asked to come for a second interview May 4th and given a 221g. It was a grueling 6 week wait. Long and short of it, he was interviewed fairly and respectfully Thursday in Mumbai and I want you all to know that to maybe calm your fears. We do have strong case, have known eachother since 2001 and were acquantainces only and did not really keep in touch much until 2003. Life is funny how things happen. Anyway, please keep good records of all your communications with eachother. My trip to India, staying with his family and their acceptance of me I am sure helped us. I dont want to ramble but I do want to give you all inspiration as those of you on here have given to me when I have contacted them. If we can help contact us. Will post details of interview soon. Always say I can, I will and I believe. Really, it helps.

May you all be successful in your journey and may you be reunited soon.

And to Katrina, Jas, Vicki, Charuhans,Andrew, Bala, and my good friend Mary Thanks so much!! :star:
