Visa in hand!

25 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

:dance: Abed got his passport back today with his visa in it! :dance:

He texted me at 3 am saying he got "the call", then called me 3 times before I finally woke up at 4 am, then I couldn't go back to sleep, still nervous, but happy and excited. I'm going to be so dead at work tonight! Only 1 month in AP....thank God!

Now to figure when we can get him here!

Much love and prayers for everyone still waiting.

~Angie

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!

Don't just open your mouth and prove yourself a fool....put it in writing.

It gets harder the more you know. Because the more you find out, the uglier everything seems.
