Above all, We want to give thanks to God for making this process possible and for guiding us all throughout our journey and from this day onwards to our union.

Thank You to My Saint for the unending love, the loving care, the faithfulness, kindness, and for all that you've done, for making me your perfect half. It is beyond words to say how much you care about me. I love you 'til eternity, dude... Get ready to receive your package on 11:35pm, 12-27-08 at vegas airport. I got the precious package for you...whewwww!!!!

To all my family and friends, who understands me and supported me.

To my VJ family, thank you for the encouragement and ideas you shared. Those are very much helpful for the speedy process we had. We will be here too to help those who are still starting.


America, watch out!!!lolz

"you fondle my trigger then you blame my gun"

Timeline: 13 month long journey from filing to visa in hand

If you were lucky and got an approval and reunion with your loved one rather quickly; Please refrain from telling people who waited 6+ months just to get out of a service center to "chill out" or to "stop whining" It's insensitive,and unecessary. Once you walk a mile in their shoes you will understand and be heard.
