MENA people in Europe

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey there, I think it would be neat if we could all hear from some of the MENA people who are in European countries and just share a little about your experience and anything else.

I´ll start....

My fiance is Moroccan and we met while I was studying in Spain and he was working there. He has been in Spain for almost seven years and we lived there for about three years together until I came back to the US in January 2010.

We started the K-1 process and filed February 11, 2010 and are awaiting our NOA2. We are praying this process goes by quickly and we can finally be together soon! :innocent:
