Just received our NOA1

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

*sigh* It is exciting to have received our first NOA, but the waiting is going to kill me, I think. I admire the community that has been formed here, as people from all across the globe wait to be united, and in some senses, accepted.

I would appreciate prayers that the process goes smoothly, that we can be patient and have faith in God to carry us through this time.

Everything I respond to is from personal knowledge, research or experience and I am in no means a lawyer or do I claim to be one. Everyone should read, research and be responsible for your own journey.

Welcome !

There are WONDERFUL people here that will help you with everything from forms to keeping your sanity.

Congratulations on your NOA1. I hope your journey goes smoothly and swiftly.

My unsolicited advice for playing the waiting game: keep busy, stay hopeful always, and do your research. Be one step ahead, be well informed, and have everything ready BEFORE you need it.

This forum has been a Godsend to many of us.

Best Wishes !
