Hello eveyone,

I am excited to finally have some closure on our long journey. My husband and I married in 2004 and filed for our CR1. We encountered several bumps in the road and were finally given and interview date December 12, 2005. He was put on AP and we were in the black abyss until last week when he got a letter to return in person to the embassy with his passport. Today he was told congratulations and they took his passport and he paid the courrier fee. We expect to have our visa in 3 -5 days. I want to thank everyone for their support and encouragement in this long process and may all of you be blessed with your loved ones soon, amen.

Mary

AP lasted 4 months 26 days so to all there is light at the end of the tunnel. :dance::dance::dance:

Two Hearts, Two Different Places, Sharing One Dream

We were strangers~ Starting out on a journey~Never dreaming What we'd have to go through ~Now here we are ~ And I'm suddenly standing ~ At the beginning with you ~ No one told me I was going to find you ~ Unexpected ~ What you did to my heart ~ When I lost hope You were there to remind me ~ This is the start ~ Life is a road And I want to keep going ~ Love is a river I wanna keep flowing ~ Life is a road Now and forever ~ Wonderful journey ~ I'll be there When the world stops turning~ I'll be there When the storm is through ~ In the end I wanna be standing At the beginning with you~
