HOLLA!

Oh how hard the time is to wait for our moments to come

Hubby has been here one month tomorrow!!! THANK THE LORD, HE IS GREAT!!!

It took us from June 07...filing for CR1 until November 2008 to receive the proper visa for him to get here.

1 year and 5 1/2 months from start to finish.

My husband did receive his K3 first...5 months before his arrival...our attorney advised him to wait it out for the CR1

NOW I am glad we did but giving up that K3 and waiting indefinitely nearly killed us. However now he is here and nothing to do but just waiting for greencard to come.

I saw him about 5 pm on November 13th...the first we did was went straight home :whistle::devil:

we drank together and stayed up all night...it was an unbelievable feeling, him coming into my place for the first time. I had invisioned that moment for too long. My best friend drove me to the airport. I was a nervous wreck.

Thank God it went so smooth and quick. Once I saw him it was like we were never apart.

My friends still waiting, I pray for you to be with your honeys soon.

After 8 months of agonizing AP my husband got here April 11, 2008. Those few hours at the airport were the most exiting hours I have ever spent waiting and waiting for him to come through those doors!!! So far everything has gone smoothly visa wise, i.e. didn't take long for the EAD to get here and he pretty much got a job right away. I think it's really cool to see him react to the change in seasons here. Watching my kids and he work out their relationship has been a cool experience as well and now they're pretty much best buddies. :luv:

We applied for our papers July 07 and my husband arrived April 24 08. We were were not separated as long as some but we had to go through the birth of our son apart and I had severe complications during pregnancy where I almost died. But thank God that he brought him here to me and our son. The first few days were running around applying for our marriage license, changing our son's birth certificate and trying to catch up on sleep and get acquainted with our appliances!! He also had to take time to get to know the baby. We had a huge family party on his fourth day here where my family welcomed him and we were officially married 4/28/08. He also had to start playing the role of step father so we took lots of trips to the park so he could earn the love of my older two children!

I will say the wait was worth it. Although he missed out on so much I am just thankful every day when I come home to him. I really feel for those that are still waiting and my heart goes out to you. The pain leaves the moment you see them at the airport. You remember it but it no longer hurts.

Here are a few pictures of his first days!

My hubby came in 2004...and on the 4th of July, 2008, he became a US Citizen. That is my wish for all of you - there is nothing like watching your spouse go through the naturalization ceremony after all the drama with USCIS/DOS. I know it will take time, but it is worth it. I will say one thing though, the visa process is just one part of it...you still have a LONG way to go with AOS, Removing Conditions, and finally on to Citizenship. You will get through it with patience and wisdom. Be prepared for anything. Keep your documentation always at your fingertips, and I'm not speaking of the greencard, I'm talking about everything that you have submitted before and keep meticulous records after as they will be required again. There was something so awesome after my hubby became a USC, when we went through all his paperwork in this huge file and realized that to USCIS that is what proved we had a bonafide relationship. :) Although, it really was everything else around that folder that showed we were/are bonafide.

I hope that your relationships have lots of ups and downs, as that is what makes them wonderful and that they last a lifetime. Peace be with you all.
