AOS Interview fairly successful!

My husband and I had our interview on Tuesday and I just thought I'd share it:

We arrived and were seen at exactly 9:30. The officer introduced himself and swore us in. He and my husband started chatting and realized they went to the same police academy so chatted some more. I was a little nervous (not sure why) so I was anxious for the interview to begin. He gave me back all but two of the passport photos we mailed in with our application. He asked if I had AP and took it to put in my file. He asked for our military IDs, driver's licenses, my passport, marriage certificate, my SS card, my EAD card and all the documents to support our marriage was legit (lease agreement, bank statement, health insurance, car insurance) He made copies of each (even though I'd brought photocopies myself).

Our officer was very professional and nice.

Although we'd mentioned how we'd met earlier through chatting (my husband was stationed overseas and I was on an assignment in the same country). He asked again about how we met. I told the whole story, in detail and when I was finished he said "and now you're stuck with him". I laughed. He didn't ask for pictures, cards, plane tickets etc. (which I brought). Nor did he ask for our financial documents (tax forms etc.) He said that everything appeared to be in order but that he just needed to copy my birth certificate. I gave it to him and he said he needed the full certificate (mine, like many Canadians' is a short form wallet-sized one). He said I'd have to get that before he could put it through for a decision. I have to travel again for work shortly so he told me to bring it in and he'd put a stamp in my passport at the same time.

That was it really. Except for my birth certificate, it seems that everything is ok.

....when it hurts to look back and you're scared to look ahead LOOK beside you and I'll be there.....

There comes a point in your life when you realize who matters, who never did, who won't anymore... and who always will.

So, don't worry about people from your past, there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.
