My husband finally got all the required documents after his entry. He entered the US in Seattle on December 4, 2008. He got his social security card December 15th and his welcome letter December 18th. Just last Saturday December 27, 2008 he received his 10-year green card came in the mail. Yay! And today he got his Washington State ID. Whew what an experience that was. It was kinda hard because we had to prove that he is a Washington state resident. We didn't have that much to show because he has only been here a couple of weeks. But the lady at the department of licensing was nice and understood the wheel situation and issued him the ID card anyway.

Now, we're just waiting for his selective service card to come in the mail.

He will hopefully start work next month as a software development engineer.

Thank you all for the prayers. It means alot. God bless always! :star:
